Investigators believe a basket of laundry left on a hot cooking top started a fire in a Lancaster home this morning.
The fire started at around 10:20 a.m. in the 200 block of N. Reservoir Street.
Police Sgt. Richard Cosmore told Lancaster Online that a man in the home put a
basket of laundry on the hot cooking top and went
upstairs, then returned to find the fire had already spread to a wall.
The man was able to escape the home by crawling onto a roof, the newspaper reported.
