A heavy fire broke out at a home last night in the Second Ward and quickly spread to the house next door.

It all started around 10pm at a home on Harrisburg and Estelle. Firefighters aren't sure what started the flames, but the house in question was made of wood and had a fire pit in the front yard. A neighbor says he heard they were burning some sort of material in that pit when the fire got out of control.

Everyone managed to get out of the homes safely.
