Fire damages home on Mitchell Street in Marshall Christmas Eve
Fire damaged a home in Marshall Christmas Eve, but no one was injured in the blaze, according to Marshall fire officials.
Assistant Fire Chief Tony Day said the fire call came in at 2:42 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Firefighters left the scene at 602 E. Mitchell St. at 4:50 p.m.
Day said the fire apparently started in a dog house and was probably caused by a heating lamp.
The fire spread from the dog house into the home and to the roof, causing approximately $20,000 damage to the structure and about $10,000 damage to contents.
The owner, Matt Franklin, was not home at the time, and neighbors reportedly rescued two dogs from the yard after the fire was discovered.
