Ann Arbor firefighters hosed down a burning chair this afternoon before it spread to a home at 1214 Crosby Crescent.
Homeowner David Miller called 911 to report his basement was full of smoke just before noon.
Though no damage was done to the house, Lt. Scott Robertson said the Millers were lucky the fire hadn't spread beyond the chair. He said the pressure of the smoke and heat would have eventually caused the chair to burst into flames and could have spread further.
Robertson said the cause of the fire is not known. Miller said he plans to inspect his basement fireplace and electric system to prevent future fires from occurring.
