A fire early Friday morning badly damaged an east Salina home.
Firefighters were called to the report of a house on fire at 1904 Valley View Drive at around 7:00 in the morning. The east side of the home was fully engulfed when the first crews arrived
Crews spent several hours trying to get the fire totally out. Battalion Chief David Turner told KSAL News at the scene that it was a difficult fire to fight. It got into the attic area of the house, eventually spreading throughout it, and a nearby waterline break prompted low water pressure in a fire hydrant being used.
There were no injuries. Turner says that the homeowner discovered the fire, called for help, and safely exited.
A department investigator was at the scene working to determine a cause.
