An Edinburg family has been left with nothing after a fire consumed their entire home.
Yesterday at around 3:30 pm the authorities received a call concerning a structural fire in the Montecristo area. Although there was no casualties the family is now asking the community for help. Now more than ever since all their belongings turned to ash. The family says that the fire spread quickly due to the mattress and toys left outside.
“We think that it was because of some light switches, because the lights from my room weren’t working and from there is where we heard the explosion,” said Elizabeth Ortiz.
