An early morning fire today in Bayview destroyed a home and displaced the two homeowners.

Timberlake Fire Protection District was dispatched to the fire at the corner of Spruce Avenue and First Street around 3:30 a.m., said Capt. Jake Capaul. Firefighters found a two-story, single-family home on fire, along with a detached garage and a couple of tall trees nearby.

The two homeowners awoke to the smell of smoke and called 911, Capaul said. No one was injured and the Red Cross is on scene to assist the homeowners.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but it is not considered suspicious, Capaul said.
