PSP: Clogged Dryer Vent Caused Fire

A clogged clothes dryer vent was the cause of a fire that damaged a mobile home in Smethport early Friday morning.

A state police fire marshal says the fire started in the dryer vent that was completely clogged with lint. The fire spread from the vent to the interior of the home of Dennis Campbell, Anita Beard and 4-year-old and 2-year-old boys. No one was hurt. Damage is estimated at $30,000.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.
