Monday evening fire

Summit volunteer firefighter Eric Hammond, center, looks into the attic of a house at 106 A.B. Thompson Road after an apparent electrical fire broke out around 5:20 p.m. Tenant Mae Lumar and her two adult daughters were inside the house owned by Kawanda Deer and managed to get out unharmed after a neighbor alerted them to the fire. The fire, which was confined to the attic, resulted in significant smoke and water damage, likely causing the house to be a total loss, a fire department official said.
