September 08, 2013

FALLING WATERS, W.Va. — No one was injured Saturday night when a small electrical fire occurred in a mobile home in the 400 block of Pepper Tree Road, off Grade Road, according to emergency service officials.

The renters had the power turned off and put the fire out using a garden hose before firefighters arrived, said Lt. Justin Delmotte with Bedington Volunteer Fire Department.

The fire was in a light fixture in the dining room ceiling, Delmotte said. Neighbors saw smoke and called 911, he said.

Firefighters disconnected power to the home, which will not be habitable again until the power is turned back on, Delmotte said.

The fire was reported at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Berkeley County Emergency Services.
