House fire in Paige

A house fire in Paige had firefighters busy along Lockhart Street.

The fire was called in at around 5:45 a.m. and three departments, including the Paige Volunteer Fire Department, responded.

It took crews about two hours to put out the fire. Officials say it took longer because there are no working fire hydrants in the area.

The home was declared a total loss. The homeowners were not home at the time.
