Firefighters are still investigating the cause of a fire that recently damaged a Martinez home this afternoon.

A postman reported seeing smoke coming from a two-story brick home at 4184 Knollcrest Circle in the Springlakes subdivision at about 12:15 p.m.

The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire.

The blaze began in the garage, but fire officials are still investigating the cause, said Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Jimmie Paschal.

Fire damaged the garage. The rest of the home sustained smoke damaged, Capt. Paschal said.

I see nothing wrong with

I see nothing wrong with expecting professionalism from a professional. Everyone makes mistakes once in a while but this paper has more errors than should be acceptable daily. They aren't the only ones though and its getting worse because people like airbud do not demand quality, education, etc...,just make excuses for them and condone the dumbing down of this country. These are usually the same people who condone doing away with requiring people to have personal responsibility.
