DIXON - A late night house fire leaves a family of four temporarily with no place to call home.
The blaze started just before 10pm Tuesday night at 1297 IL Route 26. Fire officials say they arrived on scene to see the roof on fire.
The family was able to escape the home. However, to fight the fire, crews had to shut off the gas and electric to the home. The American Red Cross is helping the family until the utilities are restored.
