A fire broke out in a home on Quincy’s south side Saturday night.
Fire crews arrived to at 2002 West Hilltop Drive around 5:30 in the evening.
When crews arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the home.
One of the residents of the home says everyone, including pets, made it out of the home safely.
Quincy firefighters, Adams County EMS along with Quincy police responded to the scene.
Quincy Fire Department officials said crews had trouble finding the source of the fire at first, but eventually managed to put it out.
QFD officials said the home did not have working smoke detectors. They said a fire like this is a good reminder to check yours.
“It’s unfortunate, there weren’t any working smoke detectors in the house, the adults in the house were alerted to the fire going on by another occupant in the house,” said QFD Assistant Fire Chief Scott Lucey.
Fire crews said the family won’t be able to stay in their home tonight because of the extent of the damage. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
