The flames and billowing smoke lit up the night sky and could be seen for miles away as Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters responded to two reports of a totally involved structure fire with flames showing. It turned out both calls were the same residence on Heartwood Lane in Roscoe. The garage, back porch and part of the home were involved with fire when firefighters arrived. The residents had gotten out safely, but a pet cat was lost in the fire. The fire is believed to be accidental and started on the back porch area before spreading to the garage and home. Two vehicles were also destroyed in the garage.
