A homeowner attempting to thaw out pipes and a dryer in another home caused small fires Monday night in Aurora.

The first blaze started around 4:30 p.m. in a single-family home on the 900 block of Meadowridge Boulevard, officials said. A dryer caught fire while the family was doing laundry and spread into a garage, Aurora Battalion Chief Don Jackley said. No damage estimates were available, and the fire remains under investigation, he said.

A second fire started at 7:30 p.m. on the 400 block of Weston Avenue while a homeowner was trying to thaw frozen pipes. That fire spread into a kitchen wall but did not cause significant damage, Jackley said.

"It was a minor overhaul," he said. "We opened up the wall and put it out, and everything was good."
