A fire Saturday has destroyed a single-dwelling home.

Choctaw Fire Chief Lamar Harvey said the call came late Saturday afternoon reporting a fire at a house at 624 Pinewood.

The home, owned by Danny Patterson, was a total loss, Harvey said. The homeowner was not there when the fire started but arrived as firefighters fought the blaze, he said. Harvey said the cause of the fire was not known.

The Choctaw Volunteer Fire Department had five trucks at the scene. Also responding to the fire, under the departments’ automatic aid agreement, were Bee Branch with one truck and Burnt Ridge with one truck.
