An Alton man’s home sustained damage Sunday when an electrical problem caused his home to catch fire.
The home, located at 1688 Grafenburg Road, caught fire while the owner was watching television, according to Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes.
“He was watching TV when a fuse blew,” Barnes said. “He went out to the garage, put in a new fuse and went back inside and turned the TV back on.”
A short time later the fuse blew again, Barnes said.
