Fire crews quickly extinguished the fire, which had broke out in the home’s attic.

Four people were displaced.

No one was injured.

“Smoke detectors save lives,” Lieutenant Jackson Baynard wrote in a media release. “Check your smoke detectors on a regular basis to ensure they will work properly and change the batteries twice a year.”
