CAMAS, Wash. -- Fire destroyed a home in Camas Tuesday afternoon, but no injuries were reported, fire officials said.

The fire was reported just after 12:30 p.m. at a single-family home on Northwest Sierra Drive, said Camas fire chief Nick Swinhart.

When crews arrived the home was fully engulfed.

"A defensive attack was taken to protect surrounding structures as the fire had grown too large," Swinhart said.

About 25 people from nine units extinguished the fire.

The home was considered a total loss. The homeowner said fire started on the deck, but the exact cause was not known, Swinhart said. No one was injured.
