Firefighters battled a blaze at a home near Zanesville on Sunday.

Perry and Washington Township Fire Departments responded to the call around 4:30 p.m. at 3985 Boggs Road. Captain Adam Siddle says the fire likely started in the basement of the home.

"Neighbors called 911 advised that there was smoke coming from the structure and Perry Township got here and attacked the fire did a really good job of knocking it out, very, very small fire and minimal damage to the home," said Captain Adam Siddle with the Washington Township Fire Department.

Siddle says the damage should be less than 10-thousand dollars. The fire is not considered to be suspicious at this time.

"It’ll probably go through the homeowner’s insurance. I don’t see any foul play or anything like that. So there’s no need to call in the fire marshal’s office," said Siddle.

No one was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.
