Winchester Fire-EMS Battalion Chief Jason Keller said the department was notified that a house at 10 6th St. was on fire around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday.

He said damage to the home was contained to primarily one side of the structure, and a “good majority” of the home and other belongings were salvageable.

The residents were not home when the fire occurred and there were no reported injuries, Keller said.
