HUBER HEIGHTS — A fire on Evergreen Woods Tuesday morning resulted in significant damage to the two story dwelling, but was not a complete loss, according to Huber Heights Fire Chief Mark Ashworth.
Ashworth said there was extensive damage to the second story and to the roof and the fire appears to have originated in the attic. The cause of the fire is unknown, but thought to be related to electrical specific to the attic area.
Crews were dispatched at 7:53 a.m. and first crews responded at 7:55 a.m. The Huber Heights Fire Division received mutual aid from Dayton, Riverside and Fairborn to assist as this was a fairly large two-story home — a tri-level, according to Ashworth.
There were no injuries and the occupants were alerted by working smoke detectors inside the home.
“It’s just another reason to reiterate the importance and value of having good working smoke detectors,” said Ashworth. “It woke them up.”
On Wednesday morning, Ashworth estimated $80,000 loss to the home and $20,000 to the contents.
