Authorities said one firefighter was injured and was taken to the hospital but has since been released.
The fire appears to have extensively damaged the home and caused some damage to an apartment building next door. It took firefighters nearly three hours to bring the fire under control, officials said.
A total of eight people were displaced by the fire.
