The Lubbock Fire Marshal's office on Monday announced the cause of a weekend house fire as being accidental and related to the home's electric wiring. The fire started in a bedroom.
Firefighters were called out Saturday just before 5 PM to a home in the 2500 block of 54th Street. A neighbor had seen smoke coming from the chimney, and knowing that no one was home, called 9-1-1. There were no reports of injuries, and there was an estimated $25,000 damage.
