House Fire Damages Basement

Sunday evening the Webster Groves Fire Department responded to a house fire on Bismark Avenue. The two residents of the home were taken to a hospital to recover and according to Webster Groves Fire Chief Mike Capriglione one of them was released today.

The chief said the cause of the fire is under investigation but at this time there’s nothing to lead authorities to think it was from suspicious behavior.

“We know the area of origin of the fire, which is a room in the basement, and we suspect it might be from a faulty electrical outlet but we haven’t yet been able to talk with anyone who was home at the time of the fire,” Capriglione said.

The basement sustained heavy damage and there is smoke damage throughout the entire home.

While this fire does not appear to be the result of a holiday-related accident, the chief did welcome the opportunity to advise residents of what they can do to keep safe during this season.
