Firefighters battle a blaze on 4554 Meadow Lane in Evans.

Neighbors called 911 just before 10 a.m. after seeing smoke coming from the single-story brick home at 4554 Meadow Lane. When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke billowing from the residence.

The homeowners were not at home at the time, and no one was injured, said Battalion Chief Jimmy Paschal. The fire appeared to have started in the kitchen and is being considered accidental, though the exact cause is still being investigated, Paschal said.

The kitchen received extensive damage, with smoke and water damage throughout the home, Paschal said.

Traffic was closed for just more than an hour on Gray Lane at Cox Road and Meadow Lane at Hereford Farm because of fire vehicles and hoses in the streets.

Insurance policyholders, and more importantly disaster survivors, need to be informed of access to equality--basic rights and information. The internet reaches far more people than anyone would have ever imagined, though difficult to gather those willing to pause, to inspect, to think on their own. And yet, much is available gratis! It just takes looking:
