Ashland, Ore. -- A lizard heat lamp is being blamed for starting a small fire inside of an Ashland home.
Ashland Fire and Rescue responded to a report of a fire on the 300 block of Idaho street around 7 Sunday morning.
Firefighters say the heat lamp was sitting on the wood floor of the home, and started burning downwards into the ground.
The fire did an estimated $5,000-$10,000 worth of damage.
Just like other heating lamps, fire crews say make sure there is nothing that can easily catch on fire nearby.
