ST. LOUIS – A north St. Louis family is entering the new year without a place to call home after a fire took nearly everything from them.
The fire took place in the 5100 block of Cabanne Avenue, located in the Academy/Sherman Park neighborhood.
The Bland family said their home and surrounding area lost power around 11:30 p.m. Monday. It’s unclear what caused the power outage.
The family went to a friend’s home because they still had electricity and heat.
When the Bland family returned home around 6 a.m., they discovered the second floor of their residence was ablaze.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
