When firefighters arrived, the home was fully engulfed, and two occupants were outside. Officials say one of the occupants was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

The home is considered a total loss, but firefighters contained the flames from reaching nearby homes. A fire investigator determined an electrical malfunction caused the fire.
