A fire on the 500 block of Soule Boulevard in Ann Arbor has left a home with heavy smoke damage but structurally sound, according to the Ann Arbor Fire Department.
Acting Battalion Chief Amy Brow said firefighters got the call at 2:07 p.m. Saturday and arrived on the scene, south of Liberty Street and east of Stadium Boulevard, to find a two-story home with smoke coming out of its upstairs windows.
Brow said there were flames in one of the bedrooms where the fire started, and smoke spread throughout the rest of the upstairs. She said firefighters were able to put the fire out by 2:21.
Brow said the home’s occupants, a couple and their two children, were able to get out of the home safely with no injuries.
She said she believes the house is structurally sound, but said the upstairs suffered significant smoke and heat damage.
“They won’t be able to stay there,” she said.
She said the cause of the fire is under investigation but arson is not suspected.
