Fire heavily damages home in Orange; couple and 14-month-old nephew were away at time

ORANGE  - Investigators are searching for the cause of a fire that heavily damaged a home in Orange.

Watch the KFDM Morning News at 4:30 a.m. for updates on the investigation.

The fire was reported at about 10 p.m. Tuesday in the 700 block of Burton Avenue.

No one was hurt but flames caused heavy damage.

Firefighters from Orange remained on the scene for several hours.

When we checked Tuesday night investigators were looking at the breaker box but they hadn't ruled on the cause of the fire.

A man who identifies himself as the homeowner told KFDM News he lives at the home with his wife and 14-month-old nephew. The man said the family wasn't home when the fire broke out. Someone called his daughter and she called her parents to tell them about the fire.
