Carroll County firefighters battled a blaze that destroyed a duplex home in downtown Carrollton for more than an hour on Saturday.
Carrollton Fire units responded to the home in the 300 block of Seventh Street around 11:12 a.m. One apartment in the duplex was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived on scene, Carrollton Fire Chief Mike Terrell said Monday.
The fire began in the southeast corner in the kitchen, he said, but quickly moved through the structure. The blaze caused the front windows of the home to blow out shortly after crews arrived.
The fire also went into the attic of the structure, which caused smoke and water damage throughout the duplex. Terrell said the structure, owned by Johnny Cox, was a total loss.
A male subject was in the home at the time of the fire, but he was able to get out of the structure without injury before crews arrived on the scene.
A cause of the fire has yet to be determined, Terrell said. No injuries were reported.
The Carrollton Fire Department was assisted at the scene by Westside and Ghent fire crews.
