No One Hurt in 'Accidental' House Fire, Authorities Say
Blaze started on the exterior of the house and moved to the attic.
No one was hurt in what authorities are calling an accidental fire on Indian Road Friday morning.
Pat Lowe, the homeowner, said her daughter and her boyfriend were home when the fire started. They and a few pets got out of the house with no injuries.
Lowe said a man saw the fire, knocked on the door, and yelled for the occupants to get out of the house.
Fire Commissioner Steve Toth said the fire appeared to have started on the exterior of the house and migrated into the attic.
“Everything right now points to this being an accidental fire,” Toth said. “There’s nothing suspicious at this point.”
Toth said authorities were still investigating the cause of the blaze Friday afternoon.
All five fire companies and the Wayne Fire Aid Squad responded to the fire.
