Central High fire takes home

A Central High family is without a home after a Wednesday morning house fire that took the lives of their pets.

Volunteer firefighters from Central High raced to the home around 8:15 a.m. and found one end of the double-wide trailer burning heavily, said Central High Fire Chief Dan Eberhard. 

"It (the fire) was going really good when we got there," Eberhard said. "It probably took an hour to get it contained and put out."

The fire marshal was called to investigate the fire's cause. It's believed that something connected with the furnace caused the fire to begin in a utility room and work its way out, Eberhard said.

Family members of William and Donna Harris  including seven foster children  were all safe and out of the home when the fire broke out, but they lost a pair of cats and a litter of puppies along with most of their belongings, Eberhard said.
