The fire is estimated to have caused more than $75,000 in damage, he said.

The blaze broke out shortly after 3 p.m., and all eight occupants of the home were safely evacuated.

The fire started in a rear bedroom on the first floor of the home and traveled to a second floor bungalow area, according to Dawson.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze pretty quick, he said.

No injuries were reported.
