Fire crews from Follansbee, Hooverson Heights, and Wellsburg responded after a fire broke out at a home on the corner of Neville St. and Linden Ave.  last night around 8:30.

Neighbors said they heard an explosion just before the fire started. One woman was home at the time of the fire, and she and her dog were able to make it out safely.

Hooverson Heights Assistant Fire Chief Brian Ritchie said a Christmas tree may have been the source of the fire, but the cause is still under investigation.
