An electrical short in a hair dryer may be to blame for starting a bathroom on fire today.
According to the homeowners at 962 Walnut Avenue, a woman was blow-drying her hair when the dryer stopped working. She put it down and then left for work.
A short time later her husband came home to let the dog out and that's when he noticed the bathroom was on fire.
The Grand Junction fire department was called out to put the blaze out.
Damage to the home is estimated at $5,000
No one was injured.
