The North Boone Fire Department fought off bitter cold temperatures to extinguish a house fire in the 2800 block of Route 173.
A passerby called the basement fire in after seeing smoke coming from the house. A fire truck was on scene within minutes.
The Capron Fire Department was slowed in getting to the fire due to a frozen electronic lock to the station house. The lock was able to be thawed quickly and they responded with a truck.
The house was up for sale and no injuries were reported.
