STERLING – The newlyweds had not yet moved in, and no one was injured in a fire that heavily damaged their new home at 25509 Indian Ridge Road just before midnight Saturday.

Sterling Fire Department got the call at 11:47 p.m. Friday, Capt. Randy Ellmaker said. It took 4 hours to put out.

The fire burned through the west exterior wall on the second level, and heat from the fire singed the east side of the house next door.

The cause and origin of the fire have not been determined, Ellmaker said. The state fire marshal is investigating.
