Christmas Eve fire in Marshfield

Scene of apartment fire in Spartanburg

Two people, two dogs, and two cats were able to safely get out of the home when the fire started.

Northwest firefighters were able to save Christmas presents from inside the home after the family expressed concern about losing them to the fire.

Firefighters were called to Clover Place in Lache at 8.40pm and found that one of the flats was "well alight", a spokesman said.

"Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time and here we are".

A Vancouver man used a garden hose to try and douse a blaze at his house on Christmas Eve. Grand Rapids Fire Chief Don Bohn said the fire was contained to the kitchen, but there was smoke damage throughout the entire house.

The Fire department is asking the public for help.

Tony Fuentes, the neighbor who reported the fire, told the Sun-Star that the home, along with another vacant residence on the same block, were routinely broken into by homeless individuals for shelter.

"I don't want to come back to a home that caught on fire", Fuentes said.

The source of the fire remains under investigation.

A child in the vehicle had minor injuries, Agee said.
