Crews were called to 3400 block
of Harborwood Road for a structure fire
around 10:30 this morning.

Not only was live ammunition
going off inside the house, a car
blocked the icy driveway and crews had
to find another way up.

The mother and son who shared the
home suffered no injuries, but the
house was a total loss. The cause of
the fire is still unknown

Police arrested the son, Frank
Miller for an outstanding warrant,
though police say the arrest had
nothing to do with the fire.
