Part of Home Damaged by Fire

Fire damaged part of Randy and Joan Connor's Derrick City house Friday afternoon.

Derrick City Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jim Kelley says at about 2:15 p.m. they got a report of a structure fire at 651 Derrick Road. Heavy smoke was coming from a second story window when they arrived on the scene.

Kelley says firefighters knocked down the blaze "rather quickly," and fire damage was contained to the kitchen area. There was smoke and water damage on the first floor.

Kelley says one person was home at the time of the fire. He made it out safely and went to a neighbor's house to call 9-1-1. There were no injuries.

About 40 firefighters were on the scene for about 2 hours. Besides Derrick City, the departments responding to the scene were Bradford City, Bradford Township, Otto Township and Limestone. Rew firefighters were on standby at Derrick City.

Kelly says the cause of the fire hasn't been determined yet, but a state police fire marshal has been called in to investigate.
