Minden Fire Department responded to its first call of the year in the 600 block of McIntyre Street. Public Information Officer Daniel Davidson said firefighters were able to contain the fire with minimal damage.
"The fire started on the second story of the residence while no one was home. A neighbor saw smoke coming from the roof and called 911. The fire department was able to confine the damage to one room on the second story. At this time the cause of the fire has not been determined." said Davidson.
