The Homer Volunteer Fire Department and Kachemak Emergency Services responded to a house fire in Homer early Friday morning.
The Homer Fire Department was notified of the fire off East Danview Avenue at about 5:23 a.m. According to Homer Fire Chief Terry Kadel, the blaze was likely caused by a citronella candle burning on the front porch of the home.
Kadel says there was extensive fire and water damage to the porch and living room of the single-story home. He says most of the home did not sustain damage from the fire or from firefighters’ response, which lasted just over two hours.
