Columbia Fire Department Battalion Chief James Weaver said a fire Tuesday on West Worley Street started in the back of a house. Firefighters could not access the back right portion of the house initially because live electric wires were down, causing significant danger. Columbia Water and Light had to shut off power to the house at the scene.
