Rochester Firefighters were called to a Lakeview Park home after they received a report of an explosion just before 8:00 p.m.
Crews did not initially find the seed of the fire but were able to keep the damage contained in the basement. Firemen are not able to confirm what the cause of the fire was, but say it is under investigation.
"We were called about quarter to seven for the report of an explosion in the house," said Jonathan Young, Batalion Chief. "The first in companies arrived, they did have smoke showing from the windows and the first floor. They did go ahead and make entry, did a quick search."
The owner of the home was reportedly out of town.
