A little before noon on Friday, the Leitchfield Fire Department responded to a house fire at 4215 St. Paul Road in the Tar Heel.
Firefighters located the blaze in the basement of the home and were able to keep the fire contained to that area of the house. The basement, though, took heavy damage with the rest of the home suffering smoke damage.
The residents of the home were able to evacuate the house with no injuries.
Firefighters put the fire out by 12:30, but continued to search for “hot spots” within the structure. Firefighters cleared the scene at 1:15.
