COLUMBIA — A residential fire left minor damages to a home north of Columbia on Sunday afternoon.
Volunteers from the Boone County Fire Protection District responded to a fire at 465 Winter St. after receiving a 911 call at 2:42 p.m.
Chief Scott Olsen said 25 emergency personnel responded to the scene.
The fire began on the back porch of the home before spreading to an addition above the porch and the attic, Olsen said. Firefighters were able to limit the damage to these areas but had to punch through a ceiling and douse the cellulose-based insulation to contain the fire.
The flames were out within 10 minutes of the firefighters' arrival, and no one was injured in the fire, Olsen said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
