Briquettes blamed for Paso Robles house fire
May 18, 2012
A neighbor smelled smoke and helped the occupant leave the home safely before fire crews arrived. Officials are working to determine a monetary cost of the fire.
Firefighters determined flames from charcoal briquettes tossed into a green waste container had first burned the trash can before spreading to the home. They want to remind the public to make sure coals are completely cool before you throw them into the trash.
