Friday morning fire causes damage to MH residence

A fire Friday morning caused damage to nearly a quarter of a Mountain Home residence. No one was injured in the blaze, and the resident was believed to be out of the house at the time it started.

According to a Mountain Home Fire Department spokesperson, 19 personnel responded to the residence at 723 Thorn Street after the call came in at 7:10. The fire had reportedly burned out the carport and spread to the attic. Personnel were able to contain the fire before it destroyed the residence, but water damage was sustained. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Two engines, a tanker, a support vehicle and a ladder truck were on the scene for nearly an hour-and-a-half.
