Astoria Fire and Rescue arrived just in the nick of time today to put out an upstairs fire before it spread.
A homeowner in the 1500 block of Seventh Street called 911 just before 8 a.m. to report smoke coming from a wall.
Fire personnel arrived and found the fire. They were able to put it out before much damage could be done, Deputy Fire Chief Steve Straily said.
We did put out a small fire in a bedroom, he said. Thankfully, we were able to get it out pretty quickly.
The cause of the fire is likely a reptile tank heating lamp.
There were no injuries.
