The Henderson Fire Department says they responded to a structure fire in the 1700 Block of North Elm Street. 

Fire officials say that call came in around 3:20 a.m. Saturday. 

HFD says when they arrived the rear of the house was on fire with fire extension into the attic area of the home. 

We're told crews were able to quickly knock the fire down on the exterior of the home and made an aggressive attack of the fire in the attic area. 

Fire officials say crews remained on scene for an extended period of time due to attic modifications which made it difficult to completely extinguish. 

Officials say no injuries were reported.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
