Fire Erupts in Home

A fire broke out Saturday afternoon at a home on Coachlight Commons Street in Lansing. The Lansing Fire Department is investigating the cause of the fire and believes it could have been electrical.

The homeowner was in the garage when the fire started in her house. Ethel Artis told us, "My little granddaughter--great granddaughter-- came running in to tell me that my bedroom was on fire. And I ran in to see what she was talkinga bout, and just as I leaned around the corner there, I couuld see a blaze . . . and I turned around and ran."

Both Artis and her great-granddaughter both got out of the house without injury. Nobody else was home when the fire started.
