CHANNEL 5 NEWS also spoke to the owner of the property.

“I don’t know. My brother told me there was a fire and that my house was on fire,” she says. “I said, ‘No, it’s not.’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, the one on Ware Road is.’ I said, ‘Oh my gosh! What do you mean it’s on fire?’ He said, ‘There’s smoke everywhere. There’s fire trucks everywhere.’ So I rushed over here.”

No injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing.
