UPDATE (WKOW) -- Madison Fire Chief Steven Davis said two people were at the home on Sheffield Road when fire crews arrived. One person was outside the home, the other person was inside. Firefighters pulled that person out of the house and is in critical condition at an area hospital. Davis said the second person was also taken to the hospital. The condition of that person is unknown.

Jensen Buehler lives behind the burning house on Lumley Road. She describes what she saw.

"I stepped outside and I was getting in my car and all of a sudden I saw the orange flames behind me and smoke. So stepped over the hill a little bit more and I saw that the whole house was inflamed and on fire. So I called 911 and let them know that I saw a fire behind my house happening on Sheffield Road," Buehler said.

Davis said the fire was put down in about 28 minutes. He said the house sustained extensive damage. So far, no word on the cause.
