A Denton couple that reported having trouble with the circuit breaker in their wood-frame home woke up to smoke Friday morning, officials said.
Marc Dodd, fire marshal investigator for the county, said a call about the structure fire in the 2000 block of Laney Road came in at 6:08 a.m.
Denton firefighters responded since they are contracted to serve the unincorporated area.
Dodd said the young couple living in the home reported that they had had to reset their breaker repeatedly Thursday evening.
“The Denton Fire Department had to knock down a wall to get to the fire, but minimal damage was done,” Dodd said. “It was a very small fire.”
The couple, he said, were not displaced and there were no reported injuries.
