LITTLE ROCK A space heater sparked a fire that damaged a Little Rock home on Lewis Street, officials said Thursday.
Crews were called to 2701 Lewis Street about 8:15 a.m., finding a fire in one room of the single-story residence.
Firefighters on scene said an interior room was "blacked over" with fire damage and much of the rest of the interior suffered smoke damage.
Little Rock Fire Department Capt. Randy Hickmon said investigators later determined a space heater started the blaze, causing an estimated $5,000 in damage.
The residents in the home are being assisted by the Red Cross, Hickmon said.
No injuries were reported.
