House fires leaves family out in the cold

Just after a West Peoria Mother dropped off her two kids at school a fire broke out in the family living room.

It happened at the home in the 2000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive around 8:30 a.m.

The family says the fire started behind their electric fireplace and t.v.

Both were turned off at the time.

Everyone was able to get out safely including the family pet.

Fire investigators are still trying to determine an exact cause and damage estimate.

The family will stay with the loved ones for now.
