A Quincy family reportedly was displaced by a fire that broke out about 1 a.m. Monday at 116 South St.
Quincy and DeGraff firefighters spent about six hours fighting the blaze, which reportedly began in an outer wall before spreading to a nearby bedroom.
The fire did not spread into the attic, firefighters report. About $40,000 worth of damage was done to the structure and its contents.
The residence is owned by Robert E. Crockett, according to records from the Logan County Auditor’s office.
The Logan County Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing three adults and one child with assistance.
No one was injured.
Fire crews returned to the residence just after 8 a.m. on a report of a rekindling.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office is assisting.
