GREENWOOD, Mo. - A Greenwood, Mo., woman needs to find a new place to live after a fire gutted her home. Firefighters say the home went up in flames in seconds and started in the clothes dryer.
The woman at 1305 Tyler Lane told police when her dryer ignited Sunday night, she rushed outside, and within moments, she was homeless.
Clothes dryers cause 15,000 fires a year, more than any other cause.
