Shortly after 1:00 AM, Beaumont Fire Rescue suppression units responded to the report of a structure fire at 985 Avenue B. When firefighters arrived, they found a residential structure with fire in one exterior wall and spreading to the attic. The family of seven was able to escape without injury before firefighters arrived. Firefighters were able to quickly control the fire with minimal damage. The fire appears to have been intentionally set on the exterior of the house. There is no suspect information at this time and the investigation is continuing. Red Cross was called to assist the family.
