Ferndale fire officials are working to determine what sparked a blaze that ravaged a home Thursday.

The fire was reported about 2:30 p.m. in the 1800 block of Browning, said Sgt. Steve Light of the city’s fire department.

Several people were inside at the time but escaped before crews arrived, he said, adding no injuries were reported.

It wasn’t clear where in the house the fire started, but much of the first and second floors were “heavily damaged,” Light said.

Surrounding homes were not believed to have been affected, he said.
