    An overheated laptop started a fire in a Manassas home Monday night.

    Crews were called to the 9000 block of Sandalwood Drive around 9:45 p.m., Manassas spokeswoman Patty Prince said. Fire investigators determined the laptop's battery overheated and ignited the bed linens.

    The three adults inside the home at the time were able to escape safely. They are being assisted by the Red Cross.
