TVF&R said the fire started in an outbuilding and jumped to the house. The occupants were home at the time but got out uninjured.
The fire took two hours to extinguish. Two firefighters sustained minor injuries and were taken to a hospital. They were released a short time later.
Neighbors said the fire moved fast.
"The back of the shed was on fire...it just erupted along the side of the fence and working its way down," said Isiah Terry. "So I started hosing off these trees, the ground, and I started hitting their house because it started lifting the shingles and melting the paint."
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
