Middleton said five fire vehicles and 15 firefighters responded to the fire; they were able to contain the fire to the center of the structure, involving a section of the basement and surrounding area directly above it on the main floor and into the attic. The structure is still standing, he said.

This is the third structure fire in the county. The first two occurred in Junction City on Sunday morning and on Tuesday morning, on East Ila Avenue and Shelby Street. None of the fires are believed to be suspicious.
