Space heater blamed for overnight fire

Posted: Updated:

A man and woman sleeping in a storage shed awoke to flames fully engulfing the building.

It happened shortly after midnight on the 700 block of Webb Street when a woman woke up and noticed the fire, which she says could have been caused by the small space heater the two were using to keep warm.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly and suspect the electric heater to have been the cause.

Both occupants escaped without injury, however the small building was destroyed by the fire.
