The occupants were not home at the time of the fire, which firefighters responded to at about 12:45 p.m., authorities said.
One firefighter suffered a minor injury but did not require transport to the hospital.
The cause of the fire is being investigated but does not appear to be suspicious in nature. Damage estimates are unavailable.
