All occupants made it out safely and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Additional information will be updated as it becomes available.

A two-alarm fire requires assistance from other departments for a couple more pumpers and ladder trucks. … The alarms are used to bring in more equipment and manpower due to the size of the building and the amount of fire involved. A typical fire in a small structure will usually require only one or two alarms.
