The home had been remodeled and prepared for renting. So what happened to start this fire? Here is an excerpt:
A cleaning crew was working to ready the home for potential renters and found the gas was turned off, preventing them from heating the home. Wood said they asked to use a woodburning stove to keep warm.
...they lit a fire in the stove, not knowing that no chimney had been put in for the stove when the roof was remodeled.
Those pesky details (like having a chimney for your fireplace) can come back to bite you.
