BILLINGS - The Billings Fire Department is investigating a fire that caused significant damage to a home in the Billings Heights.
The call came in at 10:27 a.m. Thursday for a structure fire at 1649 Augsburg Drive B.
Battalion Chief Terry Larson confirmed no one was in the home at the time of the fire, and says neighbors reported the residents have been on vacation for about a week.
Four engine companies with the Billings Fire Department and a ladder truck responded to the scene. It took firefighters 15 minutes to get the fire under control and enter the house.
Larson said the fire started on the backside of the house and reached the main floor. The cause of the blaze is not known at this time, and the extent of damage has yet to be determined.
