"Crews primarily took an offensive approach to battle the flames, but once the structure began to fail, they quickly switched courses to defense mode," Dykshorn in a press release Monday said.

"After many hours attacking the residential structure fire, CFR cleared the scene by 3 a.m.," Dykshorn added.

Dkyshorn says the blaze caused an estimated $320,000 worth of damage.
