Alpena Home Damaged in Early Morning Fire
An Alpena home is badly damaged after a fire early Saturday morning.
The city’s fire department says there were heavy flames coming out of a house on Clinton Street around 3 a.m.
Two residents inside were able to escape but two cats were killed.
One of the occupants told firefighters he reloads ammunition.
He thinks a lamp used to keep supplies dry may have ignited some of the gunpowder.
The fire chief says the fire significantly damaged both the home and a car parked in the driveway.
