EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Officials say crews were on the scene of a house fire for two hours Thursday night.

They say they received a report of flames coming out of a home on South Bedford Avenue near Washington Avenue at 8:40 p.m.

Officials say the fire was considered under control in less than ten minutes, but a lot of time was spent searching for hidden fire since it extended to a separate bedroom and attic space.

The person living in the home says they were sitting in the living room and heard some “popping” in the bedroom. They then saw flames behind an entertainment center situated along the front wall.

Investigators have ruled this to be an accidental, electrical fire.

No one was hurt, but the person who lived there is now displaced. The Red Cross was called to help.
