Damage was estimated at under $2,000 when a clothes dryer caught fire at Heller’s Laundromat on Lycoming Creek Road about 9:40 a.m. Monday, according to Old Lycoming Township Fire Chief Joseph Hopple.

The dryer and a set of sheets and towels in it were destroyed, Hope said. The fire was confined to the unit, he added. The fire has been ruled accidental, but an exact cause has not been determined
