Posted: Updated:

Several crews responded to a fire in Harrison early Wednesday morning.

Officials say Highway 58 Volunteer Fire responded to a fire on the 6900 block of Short Tail Springs Road around 12:40 a.m.

Crews reported flames visible through the roof and three-quarters of the home involved.

Firefighters battled the flames defensively, but extremely cold temperatures made it difficult and mutual aid was requested.

Officials say the fire started from a wood burning stove. The homeowner tried to extinguish the fire before calling 911.

The house is a total loss. No one was injured.
