A space heater is the likely cause of a house fire in Camden County.
The Mid-County Fire Protection District was called to a single-story home just north of Greenview, Friday morning, just after 7 o’clock. By the time crews arrived, flames were showing from at least 50-percent of the home.
The lone occupant was able to escape but a dog died in the fire.
Officials say the home suffered severe fire damage.
Although the cause remains under investigation, officials say an electric space heater is the probable cause.
