The Hays Fire Department and Ellis County Rural Fire Department were called to a structure fire Wednesday afternoon in Hays.

The fire, at the corner of 20th and Fort, caused damage to the residence.

It also made Hays USD 489 alter student pick-up locations for Lincoln Elementary School, located across the street from the fire. Parents were alerted to pick their children up in front of the school building, due to portions of Fort Street being blocked as emergency personnel battled the blaze.

The cause of the blaze was not determined.
