"The house was kind of smoky and burnt one end off. The shed is totally gone. They were burning trash out there and it caught the shed and then it caught the house on fire. Okay, then it's just the one part of the house that's damaged? Actually he was renovating the whole thing so just the one high eve on the second floor we had to really deal with that to make sure the fire was out."

Daly says the Lake Park Fire Department also responded to the scene...Montgomery fire02 

"The deputy sheriff did call mutual aid for us which was fine because we would have needed tankers anyway, but he could see the smoke from the highway so he went ahead and had Lake Park paged out along with us, so."

Firefighters were on the scene about two hours.
