Iowa family notices smoke in their home, prevents house fire

Posted: Updated:
STORY COUNTY (KWWL) -

A very close call for an Iowa family. The family called the Story County Fire Department when they smelled smoke in their home.

Smoke was coming from the garage by the time firefighters arrived. Firefighters were able to put it out fairly quickly and prevented the flames from reaching the inside of the house.

Firefighters say the damage is mostly confined to the garage.

The homeowner suspects an electrical problem caused the fire though firefighters were unable to confirm those suspicions.
