Firefighters arrived on scene and made entry into the home in an effort to extinguish the flames in the basement before they spread. However, once inside the fire grew quickly and jumped from the basement to the first floor. Firefighters exited the house and began another offensive attack from the outside. Once outside, firefighters quickly put out the blaze.
