08/19/12 One woman sustained burns on her foot and another escapes injury as they fled their home after the front porch caught fire shortly after three o’clock today. Firemen arrived to find flames shooting from the porch and up the front wall of the house. A neighbor had used a water hose to attack the fire but was not able to contain it. Firemen were able to save the house from being destroyed but there was a large amount of smoke and water damage throughout. The PSP fire marshal was contacted in an effort to determine the actual cause of the fire.
