The fire started on the outside of the building and made it's way up into the attic. Crews were able to put out the flames quickly, but did have to tear out some material to fully put out the fire.
No one was inside the home at the time, except for a dog and cat. Firefighters were able to get them out without injuries.
The inside of the duplex only suffered smoke and water damage. The flames did not spread to the next home because there was a firewall between them.
Investigators are looking into the exact cause.
