Basement fire leaves family with no home


Decatur – The Red Cross is helping a family who is out of their home today, because of a fire Sunday.


Firefighters say the fire started in the basement of a house on North Union Street, and then spread to the first floor. Investigators say it was likely caused by an electrical failure, or the furnace in the basement.


Three adults and three kids are receiving help from the Red Cross, including food, clothing, and a place to stay for few nights.
