Fire engulfs West Knoxville home on Christmas Eve

Fire engulfs West Knoxville home on Christmas Eve

Fire officials were investigating whether a Christmas tree was to blame for the fire at the Irving house.

Shreveport Fire Department took over an hour to extinguish a house fire in the 1000 block of Pickett Street.

As firefighters arrived on the scene, they found a garage fire connected to an apartment building. The total damage for both homes is $50,000.

Two families are displaced on Christmas after two mobile homes caught fire Monday morning in northwest Charlotte.

Authorities said the electrical fire began above the stove, but firefighters contained it in the attic.

The fire departments in the area, which hold a toy drive every year are letting the family get gifts from the drive. They discovered heavy fire in the victim's apartment, according to a press release from the state fire marshal's office.

"It's not worth your life", said John Dennis with Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services.

A man died at an Abington apartment complex yesterday in a fire that remains under investigation.
