GREENVILLE — A woodstove fire at a Greenville home was quickly contained, resulting in only minor damage to the residence.

At about 2:20 p.m. Sunday, the Greenville Department of Public Safety was dispatched to 412 Bluff St. on a report of a woodstove fire.

“Upon arrival, officers determined that the fire was mostly contained inside the stove pipe with some of the heat and fire beginning to spread to the soffit and roof area that surrounded the pipe,” said Public Safety Director Michael Pousak. “Officers were quickly able to extinguish the flames in the stove pipe and around the roof area, preventing it from spreading and limiting the damage.”

Overall, Pousak estimates there was about $1,000 in damages done to the house.

No injuries were reported during the time of the fire.

“The incident was investigated and the cause was determined to be accidental,” Pousak said.

According to the Montcalm County tax records, the property belongs to Trista Cozort.
