"Prior to Canby Fire's arrival the business owner attempted to extinguish the fire with both a fire extinguisher and a hose," Buzalsky said.
When fire crews arrived they had fire burning actively in two rooms, with the remainder of the home charged with thick black smoke. Fire crews extinguished the initial fire, but then were challenged with fire in the attic. The fire was brought under control in 30 minutes.
There were no injuries in the fire, Buzalsky said, but the home's contents were all badly damaged from smoke and heat. Damage estimates are expected to exceed $100,000 to the home and its contents.
