The homeowner called 9-1-1 reporting that she heard a “loud bang” in her basement. She also smelled something burning.
Oliver Fire Department spokesman Rob Graham said firefighters ventilated the house and entered the basement where they found some pieces of smoldering paper and cardboard.
Graham said the woman was the only occupant in the house.
There was no significant smoke damage reported.
