A home in Campbell was damaged during an electrical fire late Monday.

The fire broke out just after 11 p.m. in the 100 block of 16th Street.

Campbell Fire Chief Nick Hrelec said the fire started from an overpowered breaker that overheated.

Flames and smoke spread up the walls to the attic. Second floor rooms were damaged, but the woman living in the house escaped injury.
