Electrical short blamed for Saturday fire

March 25th, 2012 in News

Cole County firefighters determined Saturday a short in an electric stove caused the fire that damaged a kitchen in a vacant rental home near Henley.

Assistant Fire Chief Mike Rackers said firefighters got the call about 7 a.m. Saturday, and had the fire out by 7:30.

But, he said, the kitchen at 5522 S. Teal Bottom Road was "pretty well gutted." He estimated the damage at $15,000-$20,000.

Rackers said no one was hurt.
