Investigators can’t rule out an old space heater as the possible cause of a Branson house fire on Feb. 11.
Branson Fire Chief Ted Martin reported that at approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday, firefighters were dispatched to a possible residential structure fire in the 600 Block of Pacific Street.
“The first arriving engine company from Fire Station No. 1, the captain reported heavy smoke conditions from all sides of the house and a possible fire just inside the front doors,” said Martin. “So they were able to make a quick interior attack and they were able to contain and extinguish the fire in the area that it was discovered, and that was a small closet area and extended up towards the attic space. The firefighters were able to open up that space and contain the fire where they found it.”
