A basement fire damaged a home in Middleton Friday, according to the Middleton Fire Department.

Fire officials at the scene told WISC-TV the fire was coming from the basement, transferred through the floor to the main entry area and was well-advanced by the time they arrived.

A backdraft resulted in heavy smoldering inside the home, according to fire officials. The floors of the home partially collapsed.
