    Hi Eleanore. This is an answer to your question. The fire was started by electrical wiring in the wall. The four family members and 3 pets made it out o.k. The fire spread quickly and they only got out with the cloths on their back.The fire department arrived quickly and did an awesome job on getting the fire out.Everything upstairs was burned or melted and downstairs was a lot of smoke and water damage.If this fire would have started in the middle of the night there would probably have been lost lives.God’s hand of protection was on all involved, thankfully!
