A house fire caused $25,000 in damages.

Early on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 15, firefighters from in Batavia Township, Ohio, responded to an emergency call about a fire that had broken out in the neighborhood of Hickory Court. According to a press release from the department, emergency responders were dispatched to the scene just after 8 a.m. earlier this week.

The first unit arrived to the scene approximately seven minutes after the initial call was placed. The firefighters saw white smoke coming from the rear of the home after getting to the home. The responders were able to quickly contain the fire, although the house itself sustained over $25,000 in damage to its structure, contents and property.

"The homeowners were out of the structure and advised fire crews that the fire was in the basement and access would be difficult due to the large volume of items stored in the home, including the basement," said a public release from the city's fire department.
