Fire officials are still trying to determine the cause of the 11-A-M fire, but the homeowner thinks it may have been a flue fire. Gary Maxey says he had fire going in a Fisher stove downstairs last night, but says he thought it would have gone out by morning. He says he was in bed asleep when the house caught fire. There's no estimate on the total damage, but Reed Mountain Fire Chief Jim Short says there was "pretty extensive damage" on the first floor and in the attic.
