Three children, ages 12, 14 and 16, were inside when the fire started but managed to escape unharmed.
The single-alarm blaze damaged a 5,000-square-foot, single-story home at 251 Greenoaks Drive. Chief Schapelhouman said a neighbor reported seeing heavy smoke at about 4:15 p.m.
It appears the blaze started in the motor compartment of a Ford Expedition and spread to a breezeway, then through the attic and wood-shingled roof, Chief Schapelhouman said.
Twenty-four firefighters responded and had the fire controlled by 4:43 p.m.
Chief Schapelhouman said the fire caused $150,000 to $200,000 in damage to the structure and approximately $50,000 in damage to contents. The house will not be habitable tonight, he said.
The official cause of the fire is under investigation.
