Front of home engulfed in smoke and fire

Fire caused major damage to a Ford City home Monday afternoon.
The fire broke out in a single-famly residence on the 300 lock of Tyler Street  around 3 p.m.
The front of the house was engulfed in smoke and flames when the first Kern County firefighters arrived on the scene.
The fire also spread to a nearby home but  that fire was extinguished before it could cause major damage.
