 No injuries are reported after a fire broke out at a house just outside the west limits of the city of Atchison Tuesday night.

 According to Shannon Township Fire Chief Spider Shell, his crews responded to a call at 7894 Pratt Road around 6:23 of smoke coming from the roof of the house.

 Shell says the fire was contained to the attic and one of the bedrooms.  It was extinguished by 8 Tuesday evening, and crews stuck around for another half an hour to monitor for hot spots.

 They were assisted by Rural Fire District five Lancaster/Huron.
