Of the two residences involved, Marshall described one as having minor damage and the other as sustaining more severe damage because the fire spread to its attic. The two outbuildings were destroyed, he said.
Marshall provided an estimate of $200,000 for the combined damage. He also said the damage displaced at least two residents who were being offered assistance by the American Red Cross.
There has not yet been a determination on the cause of the fire, which started near railroad tracks that run through a residential area, Marshall said.MORE NEWS: Homeland Security Warns Russian-Ukraine Crisis Could Lead to Cyberattacks in U.S.
