Still, by the time firefighters arrived the home was reportedly fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters contained the fire to the home, a car beside it and a nearby grass field. Three nearby homes were also evacuated. One of those homes had some fire damage and another had smoke damage.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
