(KMOV) – A north St. Louis family is without a home, after two fires roared through their home in the 5800 block of Minerva, just off North Kingshighway on Wednesday evening.
Fire investigators say the first fire was a small, electrical fire that started in a second floor bedroom of the home.
They say the second fire broke out while the family was picking up supplies to clean up after the first fire. The second fire was much more serious than the first, and investigators say it was suspicious becaues the fires were in two different parts of the home and were also four hours apart.
Officials have turned of electric and gas to the home.
The O’Bryant family says they do not have insurance on the home and that they were allowed in the home for a few minutes to collect what few belongings remained.
