IRON MOUNTAIN — There were no injuries Tuesday after a house fire at 416 Stanton St. in Iron Mountain.

“We are all safe,” homeowner Tarra Bjorkman told The Daily News. “Everyone is accounted for, including the animals.”

Firefighters were called to the smoking home just after 10 a.m., according to the Iron Mountain Fire Department.

The IMFD contained the fire to the attic, though there was extensive water damage to the front of the home. The fire is believed to have been caused by a faulty chimney.

Firefighters returned to the station at 1 p.m.
