Radiant Floor Starts Fire In Idaho Home
Fire in a converted garage charred a home in Idaho earlier this month. Wood River Incident Commander Bart Lassman told the Idaho Mountain Express that all signs pointed to the radiant heating in the floor as the culprit in triggering the blaze.
From the article:
- "After speaking with an electrician, it appears that
these Mylar panels that were built into the floor are not made to be in the
floor, but the ceiling," Lassman said. "There was a mattress on the
floor, no box spring. The occupant renting the room said he had been smelling
smoke for quite some time, even back to this summer, but thought it was from
the Castle Rock Fire."
