Fire department called to structure fire


At 8:06 p.m. Saturday, the Hays Fire Department, supported by the Hays Police Department and Ellis County EMS, responded to a building fire at 2502 Virginia Drive.

On arrival, firefighters found a small fire burning on the outside of the building, with some spread into the wall. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and opened the wall to make sure the fire was fully extinguished.

The most probable cause of the fire was smoking material improperly discarded into dry grass and mulch.
