Minden Fire Chief Brian Williams said a fire of undetermined origin caused substantial damage to a residence in the 400 block of Fincher Road early Monday afternoon.

Williams said his department received a call shortly after 2:30 p.m. Monday and firefighters responded to the scene in less than two minutes.

“We were already going to the trucks when the call came in and we were able to get there very quickly,” he said. “We had the fire under control in about 20 minutes and had hot spots tapped out in about 45 minutes.”

Williams said no one was injured in the blaze. MFD personnel conducted a thorough investigation at the scene and could find nothing suspicious about the cause of the fire, Williams said. No damage to adjacent homes has been reported.
