A Thursday morning structure fire was quickly contained by Oktibbeha County volunteer firefighters, County Fire Services Coordinator Kirk Rosenhan said. 


No occupants were at home at the time of the fire, he said, and no injuries were reported. 


The Maben Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to 720 New Light Road at approximately 8:22 a.m. after a passer-by reported the incident to 911 dispatchers. Additional firefighters were summoned from Adaton and Self Creek as a precaution, Rosenhan said. 


The fire, which was contained to one room, was quickly extinguished by volunteers, he said. The structure also suffered slight smoke damage. 


County investigators have not yet determined the fire's cause.
