Authorities say an electric heater may be to blame for a Florence fire that killed four dogs and destroyed their owner's apartment.
Florence Fire Marshal Ken Carr told several media outlets that the fire started at around 8:45 p.m. Monday in the downtown apartment.
Carr says two adult dogs and two puppies were killed. He says the second-floor apartment suffered heavy damage from smoke and fire. A garage on the first floor was damaged by water.
Carr says the dogs' owner wasn't home at the time of the fire. He says an electric heater had been placed too close to combustible materials.
