Pool House Fire Causes $100,000 Damage (PHOTOS)



An electrical failure is blamed for a pool house fire that occurred in the 13100 block of Jasmine Hill Terrace overnight, according to a fire department official.

Fire and Rescue Services Spokesperson Pete Piringer said firefighters arrived at around 3:45 a.m. to heavy fire conditions at the pool house, which was located at the rear of a single family home.

Piringer said damage is estimated at $100,000.
