No one was home when the fire broke out. Neighbors heard some loud ":booms":, and called 9-1-1 at first believing it to be a bon fire.
The home is a total loss, but firefighters managed to save two horses who were in back of the house.
The home owners have been notified. The hartland fire chief believes the blaze may have started in the shed. The fire marshal was called in to determine an exact cause.
