County firefighters quickly responded and were able to confine the fire damage to the back bedroom, however the home received a lot of smoke and heat damage throughout the structure.

Engines from the Liberty and Main Station responded along with the department's tanker truck.

Chief Green says the cause of the fire is under investigation.

No one was injured.
