A house fire between College Station and Millican on Friday resulted in no injuries but left the family without their home. The chief of the South Brazos County volunteer fire department, Chet Barker, says the fire started in a refrigerator located in the home’s garage. Barker says 30 to 40 percent of the home sustained fire damage, and the rest of the structure had smoke damage. Barker says the South Brazos VFD responded with four units and were assisted by a pumper and ambulance from the College Station fire department. The home is located on River Place Drive, which is west of FM 2154 off Koppe Bridge Road near the Brazos River.
