Fire officials say one woman was injured by fighting the fire, cutting her feet on broken glass.

She was taken to an area hospital.

EFD says the fire likely started from a power strip overload and fish tank overheating as a result.

There was no structural damage to the house and fire is considered accidental.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
