A residence in Cropper sustained damage after a fire broke out at 1 a.m. in the morning fire officials said.
Bagdad Fire Chief Rusty Newton said they were called to the residence of Christopher Durin of Cropper at about 1 p.m. Monday morning.
“When we got on scene, we found the attic on fire,” he said. “It was tough getting to it.”
Newton said that Durin told him that the lights flickered, then the power went off, and right after that, Durin, who was home with his son, smelled smoke coming upstairs and called 911.
