JUPTER FARMS, Fla. - Palm Beach County Fire investigators are working to determine what caused a house fire this afternoon in Jupiter Farms.
Fire officials say the fire likely started in a garage adjacent to the home around 4:30 in the afternoon on 98th way N.
Authorities say the family told officials there was ammunition in the garage, though fire officials say it did not cause them problems.
District Chief, Anthony Tozzi, says a transformer exploded on a power pole outside the home while firefighters were working the fire, causing alarm, but no other problems.
Tozzi says garage fires can be at times more complicated to fight because of the potential for flammable items, such as gasoline or lighter fluids, to be in close access to the flames.
Fire crews were told pets could be inside the home, but a rescue team found no pets trapped inside.
Officials say some smoke got inside of the main residence, but firefighters were able to keep the flames away from the home.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
