UPDATED: Apartment fire blamed on light for snake cage
FARGO - An electric light used to heat a snake cage was blamed for a fire that damaged a second-floor Fargo apartment unit today.
The tenant had a corn snake in an aquarium with a screen on top of it in her bedroom, Fargo Fire Capt. Randy Weiss said.
Investigators determined that a light used to heat the cage ignited combustibles, he said.
