Fire crews were called to 124 4th Ave. NE shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday (Sept. 14, 2017).

Officials said the fire began in a garage, then spread to the house, then next door to a second home just to the south.

Everyone was able to get out of the homes without injuries.

Investigators are looking at the possibility that the incident is a case of arson.
