The Columbia Fire Department is investigating the cause of a Sunday night house fire.
The fire in the 4300 block of Ridgewood Avenue in the Eau Claire neighborhood was reported at 11:13 p.m., said Interim Columbia Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins. Heavy fire and smoke were coming out of the house when firefighters arrived. They worked about 20 minutes to get the blaze under control, Jenkins said.
The fire caused an estimated $60,000 in damage to the home and destroyed about $10,000 worth of inside contents, Jenkins said. No one was home when firefighters arrived. One person who lived in the house has been displaced, he said. No one was injured while fighting the fire.
