Crews are investigating a fire at a house in the 1100 block of West Harvey Street that happened overnight Monday. 

That's on South Bend's Northwest side, near Lincolway West.

The call came in around midnight.

The Fire Department says one person was in the house but managed to escape without injuries before firefighters arrived.

Firefighters worried about this spreading to other homes.

Quickly our crews were able to get a quick attack on it and knock the fire down pretty rapidly and there was no spread to the adjacent structures," South Bend Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Catanzarite said. 

It's not clear what started the fire. Investigators are now trying to figure out where in the house it started.
