HOUSE FIRE: Des Moines Home Damaged


Firefighters say a faulty electrical wire caused a Des Moines home to catch fire Tuesday morning.

The fire broke out around 6:00 a.m. in the 1600 block of Hickman. Crews were able to quickly knock down the fire.

Captain Steve Brown says the fire started in the attic and an electrical wire appears to be the cause. There were no working smoke detectors in the home.

No one was hurt.

Damage to the home is estimated at $30,000.
