OGDEN -- A small fire did a few hundred dollars in damage to an Ogden home Tuesday night.

The homeowner heard a pop in the bathroom in the back of the house at 900 Century Drive around 8:15 p.m., Ogden Fire Battalion Chief Hal Van Meeteren said. At the sight of smoke, the man discharged a fire extinguisher into the bathroom before evacuating the house.

Firefighters found the cabinet area smoldering and put it out. The damage was confined to the bathroom, though the house had to be ventilated of all the smoke.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Van Meeteren said.
