Oily rags caused a home in northeast bend to go up in flames.  the fire occurred during the noon hour on Thursday at a home on Vogt Road off of Boyd Acres Road.  Luckily, the mom and her two kids got out of the house along with the pets.  Neighbor Mindy Paul saw the flames and called 911.  “I just looked out the bedroom window and saw smoke.  And I saw the playhouse that they just started building this weekend was  going up in flames.  So I called 911 they said people were coming.”  Fire investigators say improper disposal of oily rags caused the playhouse go up in flames and spread to the house.  The oily rags were left in a pile less than a foot from the home.  The rags ignited and started the fire.  The house is considered a total loss.  Damage is estimated at  $100,000.
