Fire leaves Spring Valley home damaged

Posted by wlpo on September 26, 2011

Flames were showing and heavy smoke was seeping from the eves of a two-story house in Spring Valley.  A couple living on East Dakota Street called in the fire just after 10pm Monday.

Spring Valley Fire Chief Todd Bogatitus says he thinks it was an electrical fire that started in a closet area and spread into the attic.  Though they were able to keep the flames to the attic, the house was left with heavy smoke and water damage.

The couple won’t be able to stay there.  No word on if they needed Red Cross assistance.
