Fortunately, there were no reported injuries. Corporal Darren Brooks and Deputy Austin Goins with the Polk County Sheriff's Office initiated a preliminary investigation. According to a source, Galvez had left a space heater on for pets and this is believed to be the likely cause of the fire. The fire was extinguished, but the home was completely destroyed.
