Effort to thaw frozen pipe leads to small fire

Emporia firefighters made quick work of a small fire Monday.

Fire Capt. Harlan Smith says residents were using a space heater to warm frozen pipes in a crawl space at 504 Chestnut.

That action got the siding warm around 12:50 pm. Firefighters found a small piece of wood smoldering.

There was minimal smoke and fire damage.

The resident is listed as Eron Tweedy. Farm and Home manages the house.
