An house in the 7100 block of Maplewood Court Southwest, just outside Capitol State Forest, was extensively damaged by fire Tuesday.
McLane Black Lake Fire Department was dispatched at 11 a.m. when a neighbor noticed heavy smoke coming from the home, according to a news release.
Firefighters found smoke coming from a 2,100-square-foot, split-level home and flames coming from the oil furnace.
The fire spread through the furnace ducting into the walls and attic. The home, built in 1973, was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
