PORCH FIRE: Cigarette Causes Apartment Damage

Posted on: 12:43 am, June 11, 2012, by

Urbandale firefighters put out a porch fire at an apartment complex Sunday afternoon.

Crews were called the West Pointe apartments around 2 p.m. Sunday.  Fire fighters believe that a cigarette inside a can on the porch ignited the fire.

Crews were able to contain the fire to the outside wall of the building.

Officials say they see these kinds of fires more often than they’d like.

The fire caused about ten thousand dollars in damage.

Officials say once the flames were out, everyone returned home.
