HOBART, Wis. (WBAY) - Fire officials say no one was reported injured during a house fire in Hobart Wednesday evening.

According to the Hobart Fire Department, crews were called to 1185 Hill Drive at about 6 p.m.

When they arrived, officials say they found a single family home in flames, and found all of the occupants had evacuated and were accounted for.

Police had blocked Hillcrest Drive off of Highway 29, and they have also blocked traffic off at the roundabout.

In addition, fire officials say nine departments responded with tenders and engine crews.

A neighbor told an Action 2 News crew there aren’t fire hydrants in the area.

Although Hobart fire officials say flames were finally extinguished at 7:45 p.m., crews were still at the scene as of 10 p.m. in order to do overhaul, as well as investigate the fire.

Hobart Fire Chief Jerry Lancelle says the homeowners are safe, and are currently staying with relatives who are in the area.

As of this time, fire officials don’t know what caused the fire, or have a damage estimate.
