When firefighter arrived the 2-½-story log home was well involved. Firefighters launched an offensive attack but because of the lack of water and rapidly extending fire a defensive attack made.

Nearly 50 firefighters from eight fire companies battled the blaze for over three hours. A damage estimate or cause was not listed.
