Washing machine starts fire on Bardin Street
Firefighters put out a fire at a house on the city's northwest side. It happened on Bardin Street, which is off West Ridge Road.
Firefighters said when they got to the house a washing machine was on fire. They put the fire out quickly but there was smoke throughout the first floor apartment.
One person lived there and got out safely. The other three apartments in the house weren't affected. Just last Wednesday, a neighbor helped rescue people from another house fire on that small street.
