The Fillmore Fire Department received a call on Friday about smoke in a basement. The smoke was a product of a dehumidifier that set fire. 

The homeowner was alerted of the fire by smoke detectors and was able to extinguish it before it caused more damage.

The fire department is reminding all homeowners to make sure your dehumidifiers aren't on the recall list, especially with all of the wet weather recently.
