A fire damaged a Scott home this afternoon, but nobody was injured.

The Scott Fire Department was dispatched to a residential fire in the 1112 block of Lebesque Road just before 3 p.m.

Upon arrival firefighters found heavy flames emitting from the rear of a manufactured home. Firefighters made entry into the structure and were able to quickly bring the fire, located in a bedroom, under control.
