All about Sweet Home since 1929

Phone charger blamed for house fire

A fire severely damaged an Airport Lane home Monday morning.

Sweet Home firefighters responded to the fire at 9:37 a.m. at 4591 Airport Lane, located at the intersection of Airport Lane and 46th Avenue.

Fire Chief Dave Barringer said the fire "was pretty much confined to the bedroom" in the southwest corner of the home. The rest of the home sustained smoke and water damage.

Firefighters rescued a dog from the house, Barringer said.

Occupants are Summer Guthrie and Travis Johnson.

It wasn't a total loss, Barringer said. He roughly estimated the structural damage at $25,000 to $50,000.
