ROCKFORD, Mich. — Large flames from a house fire ended up spreading to a neighboring home Saturday destroying both homes.
The fire broke out just after 10 p.m. Saturday night in the 100 block of Oak Street and ended up rekindling early Sunday morning.
A man who lives at the neighboring home says the fire started in the garage of the home next door after a plastic ash tray caught fire from a lit cigarette.
The fire quickly spread to that neighbor's home, leaving both homes uninhabitable, according to the neighbor who says everything is a complete loss.
There are no reports of any injuries at this time and that portion of Oak Street has since reopened.
No official cause has been released from investigators.
