The first firefighters on scene reported smoke visible from a second story window. Two occupants of the home were able to escape the structure and call 911. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish a fire in an upstairs bedroom which investigators say started from improperly disgarded smoking materials. The fire also spread to the ceiling.
