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.
