Two children home alone escape house fire
Two children -- who were home alone when a fire started -- were able to make it out safely.
Fire investigators say a space heater placed too close to a bed caused the blaze in Beaumont in the 500 block of Langham about 10 this morning.
The fire department says they received several calls about the fire, and Captain Brad Penisson says a 13 -year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy were home at the time. A passerby helped them escape from the house.
Firefighters were able to keep the fire contained to one bedroom, but it suffered susbtantial damage.
No one was injured in the blaze, and the Red Cross is assisting the family with a place to stay.
