 A passerby was driving along northwest 11th and Bell Thursday when he saw a tree on fire next to the home. He alerted the homeowner who was unaware of the fire that had already spread to his home.

The fire damaged the home's exterior and fence line. Firefighters found several cigarette butts near the origin of the fire and is believed to be the cause.
