SMOLAN, Kan. -

A squirrel is to blame for a large house fire in Saline County.

Saline County Sheriff's Captain Roger Soldan says a squirrel was electrocuted on a power line and dropped to the ground, catching the grass on fire. That fire spread to a house in the 4500 block of S. Burma Road in Smolan.

Smolan is just southwest of Salina.

Captain Soldan says no people were hurt, but the damage to the home was extensive and two pickups, a car and a wagon were destroyed in the fire.
