A clothes dryer is being blamed for a house fire Sunday near 130th and O Streets.
By the time firefighters arrived, the homeowner and his son had escaped. They reported that the dryer was on fire in the basement.
Firefighters found heavy smoke and a pile of smoldering clothes. Investigators reported that a water line ruptured and appeared to have put out the fire. Firefighters say the cause of the fire was a pillow in the dryer, which shouldn't have been.
Damage is estimated at more than $100,000. The Red Cross was helping the family find a place to stay for the time being.
