Monticello firefighters were called to a house fire on Friday night.
The Fire Department says when they arrived at 853 South Main Street, there was heavy fire and smoke showing from the garage.
They say the only person inside the home escaped before firefighters arrived.
Firefighters made a quick interior attack to knock down the majority of the fire.
They were on the scene for about an hour and a half.
