Family Displaced by Major House Fire Trying to Start Over

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A Corpus Christi family who lost everything in a fire this past weekend is trying to figure out what to do next.

The fire happened Saturday afternoon on Louisiana Avenue, near Alameda, moments after the family had left to attend the Buc Days parade. The two-story house was covered in thick, black smoke, and the interior was gutted by flames.

Investigators believe the blaze began on the exterior of the home, but the exact cause is still being investigated.

In the meantime, Kiii News Reporter Rudy Trevino spoke to the family, who is now attempting to start over.

A fundraiser to help the family will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Shoe Carnival, near Bed, Bath and Beyond.
