Firefighter's family loses home and Christmas gifts in house fire

Firefighter's family loses home and Christmas gifts in house fire

Officials say the fire was accidental due to an electrical problem.

Firefighters found heavy smoke and fire when they arrived on Chestnut Street.

No injuries were associated with the fire but one person did get transported to the hospital for medical reasons.

Further, the blaze left the home "uninhabitable", gutting the second floor and causing extensive damage to the first floor.

Firefighters quickly extinguished a grease fire and prevented it from spreading to the rest of the house late Sunday night.
