It responded at about 6:30 p.m. to the home and quickly controlled the fire, Battalion Chief Andrew Hunter said at the scene. It is believed to have started from a power line brought down by a tree branch, he said.

No one appeared to be home at the time of the fire, and no one was injured, Hunter said.
