A home in the Arnco community in western Coweta County was damaged by a fire Monday night, and there were no injuries to the residents or firefighters.

Around 8:30 p.m., engines 2 and 8, Truck 6, Rescue 1, and cars 4 and 706 responded to 142 Arnco 3rd Street in reference to a single-family structure fire. According to Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Denney, a total of 14 personnel responded to find heavy flames coming from the rear of the home. All residents were safely out of the home.

Crews made an aggressive attack inside the home using a one-and three-quarter-inch hand line, Denney said, and were able to put the fire under control. The American Red Cross was contacted and arrived on scene to assist the residents with temporary housing and clothing.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
