An investigation into a fire that caused $5,000 in damage to a Lawrence home Monday night is continuing.
Bill Stark, a battalion chief for the Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical Department, said a preliminary investigation of the fire scene at 2917 Lawrence Ave. didn't turn up an obvious cause of the fire.
There were no injuries, and investigators are waiting for the owners of the home to return from a vacation. Their son was home when the fire broke out in a second-story bedroom about 11 p.m. Monday.
Firefighters extinguished the fire within a matter of minutes.
