Blaze Damages East Austin Home

Updated: Friday, May 2 2014, 05:46 PM CDT

A fire ripped through an East Austin home Friday afternoon.

It started at around 3:50 p.m. at 6603 Willamette Drive,  a little over a mile south of the intersection of Hwy 183 and Hwy 290.

The Austin Fire Department says heavy fire was showing as emergency crews arrived.

One resident met fire crews outside and told them they were the only one home at the time.

That person was evaluated and taken to the hospital by EMS.

Officials say it took crews less than four minutes to get to the 1500 sq ft house.

The cause and damage estimates have not been released.
