A home on 98 Street in Crystal Ridge has sustained significant damage from a fire early this afternoon.
Firefighters were able to knock the fire down quickly, but remained on scene for several hours to make sure there weren’t any hot spots.
Luckily, the resident at home at the time detected smoke as was able to get out safely, and no other injuries were sustained in the fire.
Their quick response is credited with stopping the fire from spreading to the entire home, but it did cause damage spreading to the attic.
An estimate of the damage is not yet available, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
