A spokesperson with the Atlanta Fire Department says a tree fell in the front yard of the home and landed on a car and wires.

When the tree landed on wires, it may have caused a power surge and led to the fire, according to the spokesperson.

The back of the home and the basement sustained damage in the fire, according to officials.

No one was home during the fire and there were on injuries.
