UPDATE: Fire causes $75K in damage to Harrison home

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Fire crews in Harrison had a tough time getting control of a house fire located at 7325 Sims Road on Saturday afternoon.

Firefighters with the Highway 58 Fire Department responded around 12:10 to find flames shooting out of the back of the home.

Fire officials tell Channel 3 that damages are listed at $75,000 and that heavy fire and hot temperatures caused the metal roof to become unstable and instructed firefighters to exit the house.

Once firefighters evacuated the home, they started to conduct a defensive attack on the fire.

The cause of the fire is undetermined and will be under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

No injuries were reported but Hamilton County EMS was on the scene for any potential injuries.
