An Oct. 9 house fire in Ashland was found to be not suspicious.

The Ashland Police Department reported the cause of the fire was electrical in nature. The fire occurred at about 10:30 a.m. Oct. 9 on the 300 block of 11th Avenue West. When first responders arrived, they found two people in front of the house and the second floor engulfed in flames. A 41-year-old man and the 29-year-old woman had what authorities described as “possible first- and second-degree burns on their hands and face,” and were transported to the Memorial Medical Center in Ashland.

Police are urging residents to use patience and restraint when reading social media posts in regard to investigations because it can lead to false or misleading allegations. Those posts can cause victims to be re-victimized and possibly be accused of crimes they have not committed, according to police.
