Cigarette on back porch led to Carlton fire

CARLTON – A cigarette in a pail on the back porch of a house in Carlton didn’t extinguish and caused the fire on Monday at a home on Sawyer Road, said Walter Batt, an Orleans County fire investigator.

Batt said the cigarette was put in a pail, and didn’t go out after being used. The homeowner attempted to put out the fire as it climbed up the back wall of the house, but it spread too fast, Batt said.

The house at 1523 Sawyer Rd. is owned by Lee Kruger, who built the house in 2007. Batt said the family intends to rebuild.
