Firefighters quickly extinguish house fire

A quick response by Decatur firefighters might have saved a wooden frame from burning Sunday afternoon.

A structure fire in the 600 block of Perrin Street was reported around 3 p.m.

Firefighters arrived within minutes and contained the fire to its origination in the front bedroom, but there was smoke damage throughout the home. Its occupants were not injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
