The official report on yesterday’s house fire on Maplewood Street has been released by the Hopkinsville Fire Department.
The document shows seven trucks and 10 fire-fighters responded to 1822 Maplewood just before 1pm.
The cause of the blaze is listed as “undetermined,” though Deputy Chief Eric Bleidt said a space heater may have been responsible. No one was home at the time of the fire, with crews rescuing a dog that was locked inside.
Approximately $10,000 worth of damage was done to the home and $1,000 to contents, according to the report. The blaze was confined to the master bedroom, but the entire home sustained smoke and heat damage.
