LAKE MOHEGAN - A faulty space heater is being blamed for a house fire in Mohegan Lake.

The fire was discovered at around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, located off of Regina Road.

All of the people inside the building were able to escape, but one of them had to break open a window to get out of the building.

Firefighters say that the biggest challenge was the wind and bitter cold temperatures.

Deputy Chief Joe Mayer of the Lake Mohegan Fire Department says space heaters are not inherently dangerous, if they are used properly.
