Fire developed in a rural Emporia home late Tuesday night.

Emporia Fire Battalion Chief Rich Gould says crews were dispatched to 522 Road 170, about two miles west of the city limits, shortly before 11:15 pm after the resident came home to find smoke coming from the house as she opened the front door.

Firefighters from Emporia and Olpe got the fire out quickly, according to Gould. There were no injuries to anybody involved, including the resident and four pets.

A faulty extension cord was blamed for the fire. A damage estimate is pending. The Red Cross is providing lodging assistance in this case.
