Update: The City of Davenport released more information on the fire. Two people were home at the time, but both were outside and safe when crews arrived. One firefighter was injured and treated for a broken finger.

Investigators have ruled the cause of the fire as accidental.  It was sparked by a wood burning stove. The home has extensive damage, but officials say it is probably repairable. 

Original:

Firefighters in Davenport were called into the cold on Sunday night to fight a house fire.

Crews responded to 7631 West 76th Street around 11:00 p.m.

Officials say the fire started on a wood-burning stove on the first floor and spread to the second floor attic by traveling up the chimney flue.

Firefighters chased the fire as it spread to the back of the home and were able to extinguish it within a half an hour.

District Chief Paul Hartman says the bitter cold temperatures were a factor.

"Just a little bit challenging trying to keep equipment working but everything went well."

He says everyone made it out of the home and no one was hurt.
