Beaumont fire leaves family without a home
BEAUMONT - A fire heavily damaged a home Friday morning, leaving a Beaumont family without a place to live.
The fire was reported short after 7 a.m. at a home in the 3700 block of Detroit Street in North Beaumont.
Capt. Brad Penisson with the Beaumont Fire Department said a couple renting the home told their son to work and and saw the fire when they returned home.
Capt. Penisson says a problem with a power cord to a window air conditioning unit appears to have caused the fire.
The Red Cross is helping the family find a place to stay.
No one was injured.
