At approximately 1:19 AM, Beaumont Fire Rescue units responded to a structure fire reported at 1118 Euclid. When firefighters arrived they found the upper part of the home heavily involved by flames. Two adults and four children were able to escape from the home without injury before firefighters arrived. Due to the extent of the fire and the difficult conditions, additional units were called to the scene.
The fire apparently was caused by an electrical short in the attic space. There was extensive fire and water damage to the home. Red Cross was called to assist the occupants.
