MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - No one was injured during a house fire on Mud Island early Friday afternoon.

The fire broke out around 2:00 p.m. at house in the 800 block of Harbor Isle Circle.  The house suffered extensive damage, especially in the kitchen, where the homeowner initially saw smoke.

Complicating any such fire Mud Island is the proximity on other homes, which firefighters call exposures.

It took around an hour for firefighters to bring the blaze under control.

Neighbors said the homeowners just closed on the house last Friday, and were in the process of moving in when the fire started.

Investigators are trying to determine a cause.
