No one was injured when fire crews were called to a home on Grand Lake near Enfield Tuesday evening after reports that a fish tank had exploded.

The fire at a two-storey single family home was reported at 6:02 p.m.

A total of eight fire trucks and about 30 firefighters responded to the call.

Division Commander Pat Kline said the original call indicated that a fish tank had exploded at the home causing a fire but he said there is no evidence of that at this time.

Kline said it appears that the fire started on the second floor of the house and that most of the damage was confined to the second storey.

He said the damage was enough that the family would not be returning to the house Tuesday night.
