The fire was contained in the home’s kitchen, according to county fire department spokesman Brad Tanner. In initial reports, it is believed the fire was on the deck.

Two adults have been “temporarily displaced because of smoke conditions,” Tanner said. They are not seeking assistance from the American Red Cross.

An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the fire.
