Orleans Court House Fire

Posted: Updated:

Excessive heat and direct sunlight may be to blame for a fire that started in a trash can Sunday morning.

It happened around 11 a.m. on Orleans Court in South Austin.

An unsuspecting family was sitting at home when they noticed a fire had started in their backyard in a garbage can.

They quickly called 911, but the fire spread to parts of the home and even the attic before firefighters could arrive.

No one was injured.
