A resident on Willowbrook Road saw smoke coming out of the heating vent in the bathroom. She immediately awakened the rest of the family and they were all outside when firefighters arrived. Using an exterior stairwell, firefighters entered the smoke-filled basement and quickly found and extinquished the fire. A positive pressure fan was used to rid the basement of smoke. The cause is believed to be flammable/ combustibles too close to the water heater.
