A family in the south metro will have to find a new place to stay after a fire burned their home early Saturday morning. The fire happened just after one this morning on the 100 block of Lyndale Avenue, according to the Bloomington Fire Department. Firefighters put the flames out quickly, and crews say the family made it out of the home safely.
Police are investigating what caused a car in Bloomington to go up in flames Wednesday morning. One person died in the fire, which traffic cameras were able to capture on tape. Authorities said at this point they still don’t know what caused the fire. Officials said it’s a unique situation because they do know the fire was not caused by a car accident.
Bloomington Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects they believe have been responsible for arson fires during the summer and over the past month.
Every year more than a thousand fires are started nationwide by deep frying. Most of those fires start on Thanksgiving in most part because of the popularity of deep-fried turkey.
