A wall heater is to blame for a house fire Tuesday afternoon in north Nashville.

The fire broke out around 12:15 p.m. at the home located in the 1900 block of 12th Avenue North.

Joe Rutker was working in the home when he plugged the small heater into the wall.

A short time later, the bottom caught fire.

The fire only damaged a portion of the carpet, and Rutker was not injured.

He told News 2 he found the heater in an old house.
