Authorities said a man was in the one-story, single-family home at the time of the fire, but he smelled the smoke and escaped without injury.

The damage is estimated at $173,000 to the structure, $15,000 to its contents and $10,650 to nearby properties and cars. The cause remains under investigation.

The American Red Cross was called to assist the five occupants displaced by the fire.
