Computer Starts Two-Alarm Fire

(Milford, MA) Investigators say a two-alarm house fire in Massachusetts was sparked by a computer.

The laptop was sitting on a cardboard box in the house when it began to overheat.

The box caught fire and the old construction of the home helped the flames spread.

A teen was able to get everyone out of the house safely.

Two other homes had to be evacuated as a precaution.

Experts say computers should be turned off when they are not in use.
