BRENTWOOD -- Firefighters contained a one-alarm fire that broke out at a single family home early Friday morning, causing significant damage but injuring no one, a fire official said.
Fire crews responded about 5:15 a.m. to find the home on the 500 block of Second Street about 75 percent engulfed in flames, Brentwood Fire Chief Hugh Henderson said.
Initial concerns were expressed about the flames spreading to the houses on either side of the home, but firefighters were able to contain the flames by about 5:35 a.m., with nothing more than minor smoke damage to the adjacent homes.
The couple that lives in the house were not home at the time of the fire, but have been alerted to the incident, Henderson said.
According to Henderson, the damage caused by the fire is estimated at about $150,000. The cause and origin of the fire are still under investigation.
