Firefighters battle a blaze at a home on Deakes Avenue in Pittsfield Township Saturday.

A dramatic fire gutted a Pittsfield Township home this afternoon, causing more than $200,000 in damage, township public safety officials said.

No injuries were reported. Firefighters were throwing soaked mattresses and furniture through what appeared to have been a living room window shortly after 2:30 p.m. at the Deakes Avenue home.

Police blocked the entrance to the street off Packard and fire engines lined Packard, slowing traffic.

A woman who identified herself as a family member of the woman who owns the home said that the homeowner, who was alone when the fire began, escaped the house unharmed.

"Thank God for that; she got out," said the woman, who declined to give her name.

The fire was reported around 1:45 p.m.,. and the cause remains under investigation, according to a Pittsfield Public Safety Department press release.

Firefighters from Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor Township, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township assisted.
