Emergency crews were dispatched to a house fire at about 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Farmington Fire Department responded to the call at 506 W. Liberty St. at 3:07 p.m. to a two-story home near the intersection of West Liberty and Potosi Streets.

According to Farmington Fire Chief Todd Mecey, fire damage was confined to two rooms on the first floor of the home. Smoke and heat damage occurred throughout the home.

Mecey said he believes no one was home at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire was ruled to be accidental-electrical.

Traffic was diverted on both Potosi Street and West Liberty Street while crews battled the fire.

Assisting Farmington were the Doe Run and Park Hills Fire Departments. Big River and Desloge Fire Department moved up to the Farmington fire house and were dispatched when the call came in about 40 minutes later for the ultralight airplane crash at the airport.
