Four Displaced After Cantonment House Fire

October 9, 2017

Four people were displaced from their home after a reported fire early Monday morning in Cantonment.

Firefighters arrived just after 3:20 a.m. to find smoke in the home in the 400 block of Washington Street, near Webb Street.

There were no injuries reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation,  but may have been attributed to a washing machine. photos by Kristi Barbour, click to enlarge.

    The washing machine could very well be the culprit. The computer boards in these new machines are totally wacko. You definetely cannot leave the house and leave a washer running. They spin and spin for 15 minutes or more – can easily overheat. They may be energy saving appliances – but total junk!

    Glad no one was hurt. I hope they have home insurance.
