No one was injured, but a dog suffered from smoke inhalation after a Sunday afternoon fire.
The Lexington Fire Department was called to 248 Race Street shortly before 1 p.m. for a report of smoke coming from the home. When fire crews arrived, they put out a fire that it was in the front room.
Jeff Johnson, a district major with the Lexington Fire Department, said fire investigators determined the fire caused by a heater being too close to combustibles.
The dog was treated at the scene and is expected to be alright. Power was shut off to the home, making it temporarily inhabitable.
