WHITNEY (August 20, 2014) A Wednesday morning house fire near Whitney destroyed a bedroom and did significant damage to the rest of the house but no one was injured.

Firefighters from Whitney arrived on the scene at about 9 a.m., just after a next door neighbor had extinguished the blaze.

A woman was in the bedroom and awakened to the flames, the home owner said.

Both she and her husband were able to escape the house with injury.

Firefighters had a tough time finding the house because street signs were improperly placed.

The couple who lived in the house were displaced but have family in the area with whom they can stay.

Firefighters did not issue a cause of the blaze, which remains under investigation.
