Space heater apparent cause of fire in Hartsdale home
A fire caused extensive damage to a home in Hartsdale Thursday morning.
Firefighters say the blaze on Alexander Avenue was apparently caused by a space heater. Investigators believe the space heater was left on and caused an overload of an extension cord. The flames spread to the kitchen and there was smoke damage throughout the entire house.
There was no one home at the time of the fire. Firefighters say residents should pay close attention to all electrical appliances, especially heaters.
