A Westminster home has over $300,000 in damages after the side porch caught fire.

According to the Office of the State Fire Marshal, the fire started just before 1:30 Monday afternoon in the 2600 block Baumgardner Road. 

The State Fire Marshal said it took 70 firefighters about an hour and a half to control the fire. 

A neighbor was the one to originally call in the fire, and nobody was home when it was called in.  

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but officials did say it started on the side porch.
