The Overton Fire Department extinguished a structure fire Friday morning, the department said in a Facebook post.

Firefighters were called around 11:40 a.m. for reports of smoke coming from a structure.

“First arriving units noted heavy smoke and visible fire coming from the roof vents, units made a quick knock down and opened vents in the roof to help evacuate heat and smoke resulting in minimal fire spread,” the department said.

Also assisting were the New London Fire Department, Rusk County Rescue, Rusk County Office of Emergency Management and the Rusk County Fire Marshal’s Office.
