Witness statement name:
Mary Watts, Age 36, Homeowner

Witness statement:
This started with the general contractor I hired to build the addition to my house. He didn’t install accessible outlets on every wall so I had to use extension cords. I had the lamp on while reading a book and noticed this burning smell. I looked down to see a small fire on the carpet by the extension cord that the lamp was plugged into! Now the fire department is saying the extension cord caused the fire.
