A home in the Security-Widefield area is a total loss after a fire Monday afternoon.

The fire happened around noon near Dartmouth and Amherst. Fire officials said the back of the house was fully engulfed when crews arrived.

Mutual aid was brought in.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation but officials want to use this as an example.

“There’s a lot of things that go on in the summer time that use open flames and looking at this as a primary example to always be cautious and make sure you’re in control of what you’re doing,” said Security Assistant Fire Marshal Ken Gianino.

Officials said grills are often to blame for starting fires, though not the case here.
