Roseville firefighters worked to contain a fire that was so hot, it melted some equipment on fire rigs, according to a fire official.
Fire crews were called to a two-story house on Rosemont in the area of 12 Mile and Utica roads after passers-by saw flames and smoke coming from the house. Plumes of thick black smoke reportedly were visible from miles away.
“It was a very intense fire,” said Battalion Chief Todd Adams. “The heat actually damaged one of our trucks. It melted some of our emergency lights and tools that were in the rig.”
Adams said the cause of the fire is under investigation, but added it was started “unintentionally.” He said he could not comment on a report that the fire began from a burning candle coming in contact with a curtain inside the home.
The family was able to safely escape and no injuries were reported. The owner was renting from his mother, officials said.
