Firefighters were on the scene of a house fire on South 37th West Avenue Monday morning. 

Firefighters say there were a lot of flames in the house when they showed up. It appears to have started in the bedroom and spread to the attic. There's damage to the walls and in the attic but firefighters say the house should still be structurally sound.

The biggest challenge was getting water to the area so they could put out the flames. 

"Chief started a few engines right off the bat. We knew we'd probably have to pump the trucks so yeah, water was probably one of the biggest deals since we didn't have a hydrant anywhere close," said Equipment Operator Arthur Candler.

Firefighters say the five adults all made it out without getting hurt. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
