LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The Longview Fire Department has released a cause of a house fire that happened in the 100 block of Young Street around 3:30 pm Saturday.
The fire originated in the kitchen area and spread to the attic. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze before it could spread. They say residents were heating their house with a stove and oven and something fell on the stove and ignited. Four residents were displaced because of fire damage.
The Longview Fire Department says it is not a good idea to heat your house with a stove top or oven since the thermostat will never stop the oven from heating up.
