PRESHO-A house fire caused damage to a bedroom and light smoke damage Friday afternoon in a Presho residence.

Jamie Vesely, training officer with the Presho Fire Department, said the fire started at about 1 p.m. in one of the bedrooms in the home located on the 200 block of Main Street. Vesely said the fire burned up the mattress in the room and filled the house full of smoke. The fire was contained to the one bedroom, and Vesely said the cause is unknown.

Nobody was injured and no other structures were damaged. Vesely said the residents of the home were not displaced and were able to return to the home on Friday afternoon. Vesely said he was unsure who owns the property.

Firefighters with the Presho Fire Department and Kennebec Fire Department were on scene for about two hours.
