Two people are safe but a home in the Town of Cleveland has significant damage following a fire Wednesday afternoon.

Crews responded to a fire at a home on Hayes Road near HWY 153 at 1:15pm.

Stratford Fire Chief Bill Griesbach tells NewsChannel 7 the fire was likely started by a malfunction with an electric coffee maker. The fire spread to the house and then to the roof.

Two adults were home at the time of the fire. They got out unharmed.

Stratford, Edgar and the Town of McMillan fire departments responded to the scene.
