Firefighters encountered smoke fire coming from a second floor balcony of a three-story, middle townhouse. Firefighters conducted an aggressive fire attack and quickly brought the fire under control and kept the fire from spreading into the home.
Two adults and children were home when the fire broke out and escaped unharmed. There were no injuries.
Damage is estimated at $2,000.
Fire investigators said the fire was accidental. An improperly disposed cigarette into a flower pot on the balcony caused the fire.
