PUEBLO, Colo. Firefighters extinguished a fire in a Pueblo home after an aggressive attack early Tuesday morning.

Crews rushed to the scene after a passerby noticed smoke coming out of a back window of the home on the 1100 block of Summit Avenue. Smoke and flames could be seen coming out of the home when firefighters with the Pueblo Fire Department got to the scene. Six fire engines responded.

Pueblo firefighter Bryce Boyer was among those who responded to Tuesday morning's fire.

"Right now, the walls in the kitchen are kind of beat up. The ceiling we had to pull that to check for extension in the attic. The kitchen, being the room on fire has significant damage to it," said Boyer.

The fire was reported around 9:15 a.m., and put out in under an hour. The fire department says the fire was started by an electric appliance in the kitchen. No one was in the home at the time the fire started.
