A heat lamp caused a dog house to catch fire Sunday morning, but no injuries were reported.
Around 11am Sunday morning, Lyon County Rural Fire District 5 and Sheriff's Deputies responded to a call regarding a dog house fire at 430 Commercial in Neosho Rapids. Upon their arrival, they found flames visible inside the dog house, which is apparently built more like a storage shed.
The cause of the fire was determined to be a heat lamp, left on the floor of the shed overnight. No animals or people were injured. Mark and Brenda Martin of Neosho Rapids own the property. Damage is estimated around $2,000.
