Fire strikes Meadowmeer home

No one was injured Tuesday in an early morning fire at a Meadowmeer home, fire officials said.

The occupants of the Christopher Place home, including two adults and an eight-month-old infant, were sleeping when the fire started, but were roused by neighbors who heard the commotion next door, according to Bainbridge Fire Chief Glen Tyrrell.

Firefighters arrived at the home at 3:45 a.m. Tuesday to find it in "full blaze," he said. It took 40 minutes to control the flames, though firefighters were still dealing with "hot spots" well after daylight.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
