Five engines, a command unit and safety rescue unit all responded to the scene.

Everybody was out of the house before crews arrived, according to the fire department.

At least three vehicles appear to be complete write-offs, but the house and adjacent house barn were saved.

Propane tanks and aerosol spray cans exploded in the fire, hampering the fire department’s efforts because crews have to work from further back from the blaze.
