Firefighters’ quick response to a structure fire is credited with limiting damages to a FM 3019 home Wednesday.

The blaze was reported to emergency dispatchers shortly after 3:30 p.m. April 17. Hopkins County, Brinker, Saltillo and Pickton-Pine Forest firefighters were dispatched to what was reported as as single story structure fire with smoke visible from outside the single story residence.

“Pickton-Pine Forest Volunteer Fire Department got there quick and made a good stop,” said Hopkins County Fire Marshal Mike Matthews.

The blaze reportedly gutted the kitchen and burned into part of the attic and roof. The dining and living area also reportedly sustained smoke and heat damage. The rest of the structure sustained smoke damage but the remaining contents should be salvageable, according to the fire marshal’s office.

The fire is reported to be an accidental kitchen fire. A resident, who’d been working in another part of the home, reportedly discovered food on a stove had caught on fire and spread, according to HCFD reports.
