Initial arriving fire crews reported light smoke coming from the second floor of the two story home. The fire occurred in the area where repairs were being made to the building on the second floor exterior. Smoke was present in the eaves of the second floor and attic space. Companies aggressively extinguished the fire and ensured it was isolated to the point of origin.
