Officials say first responders arrived within 3-5 minutes to find the two-story house with intense flames erupting from the front.
Firefighters launched an aggressive attack, successfully containing the bulk of the fire within 10 minutes, HFD says. Firefighters had to cut into the roof to address the attic and eaves, ensuring that the fire was fully under control.
There were no reported injuries. A couple and their 2 small children self-evacuated before the HFD arrived.
