Smoke could be seen for miles.

When our news helicopter originally got there, it appeared the fire was mostly out, with only white smoke coming from two homes. However, the fire reignited and huge flames then started spreading.

Neighbors could be seen using a garden hose to water down their home.

It's unclear what led up to the fire.
