Bueng said the fire, which appeared to have originated in the kitchen area, spread quickly. The house was a total loss, he said.

Bueng said firefighters remained on the scene until about 6 a.m. Monday and returned later that morning when hotspots flared up again.

He said no one was home at the time of the fire. The house is owned by Brock Robertson, according to Bueng.

Bueng said the source of the fire has not been determined. He said representatives from the State Fire Marshal’s office will be in Ada on Tuesday to help investigate the cause.
