fire restricted to just one room before fully containing it at 10:35. However, the incident commander present at the fire deemed the structure uninhabitable, at least for the time being.

The fire spokeswoman said the home could have been deemed uninhabitable for any number of reasons such as risk of smoke inhalation or significant structural damage and that the exact reason was not clear at this point in time.

Estimates of exact damage have not yet been confirmed at this point in time either.
