Fire tears through German Valley home


A German Valley family has to find a place to stay after fire rips through their home early Tuesday morning.

Several departments were called to the 8500 block of East Edwardsville Road around 3:00am. They found smoke and flames coming from the home.  A Deputy Chief thinks the blaze started in a bedroom and spread quickly.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.  No one was hurt.  The family was able to make it out safely.
