Space heater starts carpet fire

(WEAU) - A space heater was the culprit of a carpet fire at an Eau Claire business Monday.

The Eau Claire Fire Department says it happened at 2004 Highland Avenue around 1:15 p.m. It says the building was having heating problems, so the company that owns the building, Commonweal Development Corporation, gave people working in the building space heaters.

It says once the carpet started on fire, a person kicked in a door and threw water on it to put it out.

Nobody was hurt.
