A recently installed PECO meter caught fire early Thursday and caused minor damage to a Bensalem home, a fire official said.

No one was injured, said Bensalem Battalion Chief Rob Sponheimer, who added that this was the third such fire in Bensalem since April.

Sponheimer said the digital meter was installed in late June or early July at the house in the 1800 block of Park Avenue.

Shortly after midnight, volunteer firefighters from the Eddington, Nottingham and Newport companies were called to the house and found the fire mostly burned out, but not before it scorched the side of the home, Sponheimer said.
