A house fire was reported in Winger early Thursday evening but the occupant was not home when the fire broke out so no one was injured.

    The Polk County Sheriff’s Office reports that the call came in at approximately 5:36 p.m. Thursday from 18 Main Avenue North in Winger.

    Fire and rescue crews from Winger and Erskine responded, in addition to the PCSO. An investigator from the State Fire Marshal’s office has determined that the cause of the fire appears accidental in nature.

    The extent of the damage is not known.
