Dispatchers said two men, who they believe were staying there, called them from the roof of the porch. They were able to get down without any visible injuries. The battalion chief talked to them briefly before they left.
Firefighters were able to put the fire out before it destroyed the house. Most of the damage was contained to the first floor.
No one was arrested and no suspects have been named.
