      Hair straightener causes house fire

      A fire alarm alerted Conway firefighters to a house fire on Cadbury Court just before 1 p.m. Friday.

      A hair straightener left on the bed started the fire, according to Battalion Chief Jeremy Carter.

      Firefighters contained the fire to the bedroom. But the family will have to stay with friends for a while, Carter said.
