August 21, 2008


A malfunctioning bathroom exhaust fan sparked a duplex fire Thursday morning at 1330 E. 25th Ter., a fire department spokeswoman said.

The accidental fire, which was reported just before 9:30 a.m., caused an estimated $3,000 in damage, said Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical Division Chief Eve Tolefree. It was confined to the east side of the single-story duplex and under control in about 20 minutes.

"All occupants were safely evacuated and there were no injuries of fire department personnel," Tolefree said in a news release.
