A Lubbock family is staying with relatives on Saturday night after a fire rips through their home. At 12:30, the Lubbock Fire Department was called out to 5020 61st Street.
According to District Chief Phil Hudgeons a log had fallen out of the fireplace earlier and caught the rug on fire. The family put the log back in the fireplace and washed out the rug. But once they left the house, the fire rekindled. The house had severe smoke damage.
