House fire forces family from home
BEAUMONT - A fire has forced a family out of their home.
Beaumont Fire Rescue responded to a house fire in the 2100 block of Pope Street on Friday night around 6:30 p.m.
Investigators say the fire appears to have been caused by an electrical short in a cord running under a bed. The bed caught fire, and firefighters were able to contain the fire to one room. However, the smoke and heat damaged several rooms.
The family was able to escape the fire. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
