Longview Fire Destroys Family's Christmas

A sad holiday season for a Longview family, as fire destroys their home and their Christmas today. Fire crews were called to a home on Magnolia street around 7 this morning where a blaze destroyed a back bedroom, before firemen could put it out. But after crews left, the fire "re-ignited" later, gutting the home, and burning all of the presents the family had gotten for Christmas.

Firefighters later took up a collection and bought the children presents, but the family lost practically everything in the fire. Investigators believe the fire started in the heating system.
