DALTON Fire damaged a residence in Lincoln Terrace Estates early afternoon Thursday.
Nobody was home at the time and a passerby called in the fire, said East Wayne Fire District Chief Kyle Nussbaum. No injuries were reported and no other structures were damaged.
The first engine arrived on the scene quickly and confirmed flames and smoke showing, Nussbaum said. They made a rapid interior attack on the residence to stop the fire.
Firefighters were on scene for more than two hours. North Lawrence, Kidron and Brewster were among other fire departments that arrived on the scene. Other mutual aid was canceled before arrival.
Estimated amount of damage is $10,000 to $15,000.
The fire is under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
