No one was injured and damage was light: $5,000 to the garage's contents, $10,000 to its structure, and maybe slight smoke damage to the house, Chief Schapelhouman said. The 911 call came at 9:53 p.m.
The cause? Inspectors are looking at an unplugged printer in a cardboard box. "Why would an unplugged printer be a problem?" Chief Schapelhouman mused aloud during an interview. The inspector "is looking at it again to figure out, is it that or is it something else?" he said.
The homeowner called 911 when a second-floor smoke alarm went off, he said.
