Fire crews say it appears the fire burned for a significant amount of time before the fire was called in, they say when they arrived the fire had already burned through the garage and part of the home had collapsed.

Neighbors say they could hear explosions, which alerted them to the fire. Firefighters say those explosions could have been from gas or propane tanks inside the garage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
