The Junction City Fire Department has estimated the damage from a Saturday night fire at 1602 Patriot Drive at $75,000. No one was injured. The residents were not home at the time of the blaze, and a dog was rescued.

Fire Chief Terry Johnson said the fire occurred in a two-story four plex housing unit in the Patriot Pointe housing addition. When fire crews arrived on scene they found smoke showing and flames on the back side of one of the units. The unit involved was the second from the south side of the building.

Firefighters found flames on the back deck and the back side of the building, and some of a wood fence.

The occupants in the first unit from the south side of the building were also going to be displaced because Westar Energy also had to pull their electric meter for that unit as well as for the one that burned. The Red Cross was notified to provide assistance for the families that were displaced.

The fire has been ruled as undetermined at this time with one area of origin.
