3 escape Mason City fire unharmed Monday

Posted: Updated:
MASON CITY (AP) -

Three people who'd been sleeping have escaped unharmed from a house fire in Mason City.

The fire was reported about 8 a.m. Monday.

Fire Marshal Mark Christiansen says the blaze began in a bedroom. The cause is still being investigated.

He also says the fire was the second at the house in the past 2½ years.

He says firefighters were sent to the home in July 2011 to extinguish a blaze in the family room that spread to a ceiling and the roof. No one was injured in that fire either.
