Albemarle County firefighters believe a space heater is to blame for an early morning house fire in Crozet. Crews were called to St. George Avenue just before 4 a.m. Wednesday, February 6, for reports of smoke coming from the home. Once on the scene, they quickly put out a small fire. Firefighters say no one was home at the time, but a pet inside died. "Crews from Crozet and Albemarle County went in and did a search really quick to search the whole house. Nothing was found, no fatalities inside the house. The pet that was in the house is on the scene we did find that, and pulled it out," said Crozet Volunteer Fire Department Assistant Chief Mitch Fitzgerald. An investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of the fire. There is no estimate of total damages at this time.
