A fire in a home on E. 29th Street caused extensive damage this morning.
The occupant awakened to heavy smoke. She made her way into the living room area and found a large amount of fire in the corner of the room where a Christmas tree was located.
Firefighters made a quick stop of the fire, but the living room was a total loss. Likewise, the entire home suffered smoke and heat damage.
The fire cause is undetermined at this time. However, the seat of the fire was in the vicinity of the Christmas tree.
There was just the one person home and she escaped without injury.
