PARKERSBURG (KWWL) -

High winds hampered efforts in Parkersburg as firefighters battled a blaze Sunday.

The fire was discovered at a home in the 800 block of 4th St. just before 2:30 p.m.

No-one was home at the time.

Crews say it appears the fire started in an upstairs bedroom and did significant damage to the upper floor.

Wind gusting as high as 40 miles per hour helped fan the flames.
