Fire may have been caused by electrical malfunction


A Monday afternoon fire in East Hastings may have been the result of an electrical malfunction, according to Assistant Fire Chief and Fire Marshal John Townsend.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it appears to have started in the roof of a lean-to or carport that was next to the garage at 1102 E. Second St., which is on the corner of Second and Adam streets.
