A late afternoon fire in the 300 block of Benjamin Street on Thursday left one resident with minor burns.

Denton firefighters received a call at 4:30 p.m. regarding a fire at a single-story duplex, though no flames were evident when firefighters arrived, officials said.

The resident received minor burns but refused medical treatment, Hedges said.

The residence was still habitable and the fire was ruled accidental.
