Crews are responding to a house fire on North 24th Street.

The call was received around 5:07 a.m. and crews say smoke and flames were visible from the home. 

They were searching to see if anyone was inside, but they could not find anyone inside after conducting a primary search. Two people currently live at the home.

The homeowners say the fire started in their room and believe it was caused by the oxygen tank.

Several crews are on the scene, and the fire is still not under control. No other homes in the area were damaged.

A building inspector will be on scene to see if the house is livable and to determine what exactly caused the fire.
