    Firefighters said they saw heavy flames and smoke coming from a house in the 1900 block of Highway 18 when they arrived just after 5 a.m.

    Officials told Channel 9 that Highway 18 was closed just south of Hartland Road due to power lines in the road.

    Nobody was hurt but the road will be closed until Duke Power is able to make repairs.
