FARMINGTON HILLS (WWJ) – Fire quickly spread through home in Farmington Hills overnight, leaving a cloud of smoke that could be seen miles away.
The fire broke out just before 6 a.m. Friday at a two-story home on Green Meadows Circle, just south of 12 Mile Road between Inkster and Middle Belt.
Reporting live from the scene, WWJ’s Charlie Langton said flames were shooting out of the roof of the home. Smoke from the fire is so thick, it could be seen from far away on I-696.
Firefighters quickly responded to the home and contained the blaze, which appears to have started on an upper level.
Three people live in the house, but they weren’t at home when the fire broke out. No injuries were reported.
John Randall, who lives two doors down from the burning home, said he was worried the flames could spread.
“With the trees being so close and spreading and stuff, yeah,” he said. “We can even smell a little bit of smoke inside our house right now, too.”
A cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
