Fire crews encourage everyone to check their smoke detectors, especially with winter around the corner.
“If they’re not in working order, contact your local fire department”, said Sean McNeil, Harrison Township Battalion Chief. “A lot of them have smoke detectors that they give out”.
Officials are still working to find out what started the fire.
Harrison Twp. firefighters responded to a house fire in the 300 block of Loretta Drive Sunday night.
The fire started in the living room, possibly on a chair or couch, around 10:45 p.m. and had visible flames, per initial reports.
One person was inside when the fire occurred, but was able to escape without injuries.
The Red Cross was called to the scene because the individual will not be able to stay in the home overnight, according to officials.
Officials continue to investigate what started the fire.
