(QUINCY) – The occupant of a Quincy area home was not injured when a fire broke out Saturday morning.

The Quincy Fire Department were sent to 365 North Briggs Road at 7:46 AM for a house fire with someone trapped inside. Crews arrived and found heavy fire showing through the roof of the two story dwelling.

Firefighters were able to locate and remove the lone individual from the house.

The Coldwater, Allen and Fremont Fire Departments were called in to give mutual aid, and the fire was brought under control and extinguished within an hour.

Initial investigation shows the fire appears to have started from the pipe of a wood stove in the attic space. Because of the buildings construction and the heavy fire load, the blaze spread quickly to the second floor and then through the roof.

Firefighters say the heavy snow received on Friday made it difficult to battle the blaze, having to drag the hoses through the snow to get them into position.

Quincy Police, Life Care Ambulance and Branch County Victims Services were also called to help.
