Investigators release the cause of Morningside house fire
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -
Investigators said a burner on an electric stove that was inadvertently left on was determined to be the cause of a house fire in Sioux City's Morningside neighborhood.
Sioux City Fire Rescue crews got a call at about 11:00 a.m., Thursday, about a possible stove fire inside 1632 South Olive Street. Investigators found smoke coming from the side of the home when they arrived.
The fire extended up the walls inside of the house, and into the home's attic.
There was no one home at the time. But, a dog that was inside the home died in the fire.
Officials say there is extensive damage throughout the kitchen.
