A Corinth firefighter’s home was damaged in a fire Thursday night.

The fire occurred at the residence of Corinth Fire Department Capt. Chris Duncan, said Jerry Whirley, the fire department’s training officer.

No one was hurt in the fire, which occurred at 3202 County Road 402, said Biggersville Fire & Rescue Chief Jonathan Rider.

The house was still standing after the fire but had significant damage, Rider added. The cause of the fire was unknown.

The house was a short distance outside the Corinth city limits, south of South Harper Road and east of U.S. Highway 45. The fire was reported at around 6:40 p.m.

The Corinth Fire Department crossed into the county to assist and was a great asset, Rider said.

Other fire departments that helped were Kossuth and Farmington along with the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office and ACE Power.
