A call came in just after 9 p.m. of a house fire at 1535 N. Water St. One woman was inside the house at the time of the fire, and she escaped after trying to put out the fire with an extinguisher, battalion chief Brad Dillow said. Dillow said firefighters believe the couch was pushed up against a heater. The woman escaped the house and called 911. No one was injured in the fire, which caused moderate damage. Damage was estimated at $35,000.
