PHILOMATH, Ore. -- An electric fan is to blame for a house fire in Philomath Tuesday night, investigators said.
Fire crews said when they arrived, the home on Benton View Drive was engulfed. Smoke and flames could be seen from the downtown area.
"When we got here we saw a house that was totally engulfed in flames. We pulled out our ladder truck and proceeded to attack it with the areal nozzle," Philomath Fire Chief Tom Miller said.
Nobody was hurt, but the home was destroyed.
