Bedroom blaze damages northern Columbus home

Columbus firefighters fought a fire in a bedroom at a home on the north side of the city Tuesday afternoon.

The owner of the property in the 2000 block of Iroquois Trail called for help after she found smoke in the home at about 1:38 p.m. Tuesday afternoon. Firefighters found heavy smoke inside but no fire, until they opened a bedroom door and found the room ablaze. The fire was quickly knocked down and firefighters say the damage was mostly confined to the closed bedroom.

Damages were estimated at about $5,000.
