October 11, 2017 9:13 am


A house fire in Perry brought emergency crews to the 1300 block of 10th Street Tuesday morning, and luckily there were no injuries.

Just before 9 a.m., the Perry Police and Fire departments, Perry First Responders, and Dallas County Ambulance responded to the fire. Police Chief Eric Vaughn said there was a considerable amount of smoke coming from the second-story of the two-story home. Sources say firefighters including Assistant Fire Chief Brian Eiteman were able to extinguish the fire in the living room and kitchen, and then moved on to the staircase.

By the time the firefighters had made it upstairs, all three residents of the house had been accounted for by the police department. Fire crews were able to contain the blaze to the one home, and no one was reported as injured. The cause of the fire is currently unknown, but officials suspect it may have started in the stairwell. The Perry Fire Department is investigating the incident.
