JFRD says firefighters received the call around 6:45 a.m.

Two people were inside at the time of the fire, according to JFRD. A homeowner tried to put the fire out with a garden hose and was unsuccessful, which is when they called 911, said JFRD. 

Firefighters arrived to the home battled heavy smoke and fire coming out of the bedroom. The fire is under control, according to the tweet.
