Sheridan firefighters respond

A woman occupant reported flames rising from a ceiling fan, according to spokesman Wesley Rolfson.

Responding firefighters discovered the fan ablaze, filling the home with smoke. They used an extinguisher to knock out the fire.

The woman said she was taking a shower when she heard the fan. She said it began to glow and smoke, so she evacuated and called 911.
