THURSDAY BLAZE: Children Escaped Fire
Firefighters responded to the 1500 block of 30th street Thursday around 6:00 p.m. after a neighbor reported a house next door was on fire.
When firefighters arrived the fire had spread throughout the home from the front porch to the attic of the two-story home.
There were children in the home at the time of the fire and had called their mother, who told them to evacuate.
Investigators determined that the fire was first seen on some furniture that was located on the front porch.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The damages exceed $50,000
