04-06-2013 Morning Fire Leaves Elderly Couple Homeless

The female resident told firefighters a smoke alarm woke her up. When she ran to the rear bedroom to alert her husband, she saw an electrical outlet beside the bed, on fire. She woke up her husband and both escaped unharmed. After getting outside, they called 911.

Captain Thorne said a s2m2 police patrol officer noticed the family dog lying just inside the front door and pulled him to safety. The firefighters got the blaze under control quickly, containing most of the fire damage to the rear of the structure. An estimate on the dollar loss was not available. The couple said they would be staying with their son while the house is repaired.

The cause of the fire appears to be accidental, most likely from an electrical malfunction.
