PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) -

A Palestine family was displaced after a Fourth of July fire destroyed their home.

On Thursday afternoon, the fire marshal said that after investigating, it was discovered that there were items missing from the home that burned. Palestine police are now writing up a burglary of a habitation report regarding the incident.

Previous story: 

The fire occurred in the 700 block of Brooklyn Avenue in Palestine, Texas. The family was not home at the time of the fire.

Thursday afternoon fire investigators were at the scene. An accelerant detection K-9 was brought to the scene as well. Officials say it's too early to determine if the fire was suspicious at this time.

Wednesday, the police department posted photos from the scene.

Unfortunately the family does not have insurance.

The Red Cross has reached out to the family. The families GoFundMe page is /www.gofundme.com/j4b2k-everything-destroyed-in-fire
