AUSTIN (KXAN) — Sunlight is being blamed for starting a fire that left a south Austin home with $30,000 worth of damage Monday afternoon.
Investigators with the Austin Fire Department determined sunlight reflecting off a mirror left over from an art project started the blaze in the 6600 block of Cannonleague Drive.
Firefighters were called to the scene around 1:40 p.m. The National Weather Service reported temperatures in Austin were 98 degrees at the time.
There were no injuries and the residents will be able to return home.
