RANDOLPH — An Elm Street home was damaged Tuesday by a fire that was started accidentally by the homeowner.

Deputy Chief William Ebert said about 10 feet of siding was damaged by the flames before they were extinguished by firefighters.

“It was contained to the outside of the building and it was accidental,” Ebert said.

The fire in the single-story ranch home occurred around 1 p.m. at 26 Elm St. Nobody was injured, Ebert said.

The homeowner partially extinguished the fire before firefighters arrived, Ebert said. Firefighters from Farmingdale, Pittston and Gardiner were called to assist Randolph crews.

Ebert declined to specify how the fire was started.
