A North Courtland resident is displaced following a fire that broke out in his home Tuesday morning.
Willie Crayton was not at his home at 946 Rosa Parks Street when the fire occurred, according to Courtland Fire Chief Scott Norwood.
He said Courtland Fire Department was called out around 7:39 a.m. and found heavy smoke and flames showing from the exterior of the house by the time firefighters arrived on the scene.
Though firefighters were able to defensively attack the fire from the interior to extinguish it, Norwood said at least half the home had sustained significant fire and smoke damage.
He said no injuries were reported as a result of the blaze.
Hillsboro and Town Creek Fire Departments assisted in extinguishing the fire.
