A working fire was declared and assistance was summoned from Livonia, Mt. Morris and East Avon fire departments. Firefighters quickly made entry into the basement and began to gain control of the flames. The fire had also extended into the walls and ceilings of the first floor as well as the attic making the fire difficult to fully extinguish.
The cause of the fire was determined to be the outside electrical service wires shorting affecting wires inside the residence. The interior suffered extensive smoke and water damage.
There were no injuries.
Also assisting at the scene was the Livingston County Office of Emergency Management and Livingston County EMS.
