Lubbock firefighters put out a fire in the 3000 block of 56th St. around 3 a.m. on Friday. An electrical heater caught fire and ignited a work bench inside the garage. The fire caused $10,000 to $15,000 worth of damage in the garage and attic. Everyone inside the home was able to escape safely.
The Fire Marshal says the family did have smoke detectors but the batteries were dead. So, check those batteries to make sure your smoke detector is working properly.
