La Salle house fire – La Salle house fire

An oven looks to be what started a house fire in La Salle that has displaced a family.  It was called in shortly before 3:30pm Thursday. 

          La Salle Fire Chief Andy Bacidore says a woman living at  the home on Chartres Street, just north of 3rd Street turned the oven on to preheat and then apparently went to get her children.  

          Bacidore says the fire and smoke were heaviest in the back of the home in the kitchen, though there is heavy smoke damage throughout.  Heat melted some siding on a neighboring structure.

          The home was being rented by Tammy Eubanks.  The Red Cross has been called to help the family.
