Members of the Fire and Explosives Investigation Unit have determined that the cause of the fire is accidental and related to the improper disposal of smoking materials.

Damage is estimated at approximately $275,000. The Red Cross has assisted with relocating four adults and one child.

One member of the household sustained second degree burns to her foot and transported herself to the hospital prior to the arrival of firefighters.
