Smith County children without a home after Christmas Eve fire

The fire broke out a little after 10:30 p.m. Sunday at a Phoenix apartment complex near 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road

Charlotte Fire Department found two mobile homes on fire in the Bellhaven Estates in the 7100 block of Bellhaven Boulevard off Brookshire Blvd.

A family is homeless for Christmas after a fire engulfed their home.

Authorities said the electrical fire began above the stove, but firefighters contained it in the attic. They discovered heavy fire in the victim's apartment, according to a press release from the state fire marshal's office. He said neighbors were bringing blankets for the residents to wrap themselves in and offering their houses as shelter on the cold, snowy morning.

They said the children's mother had just brought their presents inside yesterday and they were destroyed in the fire.

The holidays tend to be a busy time of year for firefighters, Dennis said, because people are dealing with extra lights and candles in their homes.

The fire is under investigation.

Red Cross is assisting the 54 residents affected by the fire with necessities and lodging.

There were no reported injuries or deaths.
