Firefighters called to blaze at rental house 
 Wednesday, March 3, 2004 5:35 PM CST 

CHARLESTON -- Firefighters extinguished a blaze Wednesday afternoon that caused 
substantial damage to an unoccupied rental house near Jefferson Elementary 

Fire Chief Darrell Nees said firefighters were called at 12:10 p.m. to 208 
Seventh St. by a 911 call, as well as a person who saw the flames and went to 
the nearby fire station on Madison Avenue. 

Nees said when firefighters arrived at the scene, they found heavy flames 
emanating from the northwest corner of the house. He said they got the fire 
under control by 12:40 p.m. and cleared the scene at 3 p.m.

The fire appears to have been caused by an electrical malfunction in the main 
breaker box at the northwest corner of the house, Nees said.

Nees said a firefighter twisted his ankle stepping off of a ladder and was 
taken to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center for treatment. He said contractors 
were remodeling the house, but none of them reported injuries.
