A hairdryer is to blame for a shed fire in Erie

A hairdryer is to blame for a shed fire.

The Erie Fire Department responded to a call for a fire on West 23rd Street at around 11:30 Saturday morning.

The deputy chief told us the home owner tried using his snow blower, but when he realized it was frozen, he used a hairdryer to melt the ice.

He left the hairdryer running and firefighters said there was a blanket nearby. 

The home owner left the house and later found the shed completely engulfed in flames.

The deputy chief said the shed is a total loss, but it's lucky the home owner got back when he did so the fire didn't spread to the house.
