Fire damaged part of a house about 30 miles away from Emporia in northwest Lyon County on Monday, but authorities say the situation could have been much worse had the fire been allowed to sit a few more minutes.

Lyon County Deputy James Baker says deputies and fire crews from several agencies were called to 328 Road 370 shortly before noon.

The wood stove then got overheated and caught fire, eventually burning part of a wall on the north side of the house in addition to getting up into the attic.

Everyone inside the house was out when firefighters arrived. Crews from Allen-Admire, Americus, Miller and Dunlap were able to knock the fire down after about 45 minutes. Reading firefighters were also paged to the scene.
