KNOXVILLE, Md. - The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says the restoration of electricity to a Washington County home did more harm than good.
The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown newspaper ( http://bit.ly/LMVu1Z) reports that an iron left plugged in when the power went out Friday ignited a fire after power was restored Saturday.
Investigators say the fire caused $31,000 worth of damage to the two-story home and its contents.
