A home that burned down after a late-night fire was caused by an electrical shortage, said Victoria County Assistant Fire Chief David Phillips.

The home in the 3000 block of Farm-to-Market Road 1685 was heavily damaged by the fire about 11:55 p.m. Saturday night. The fire started in a bedroom.

No one was home during the fire, and there were no injuries.
