Quick-moving fire in Tuxedo destroys couple's dream home

A Tuxedo couple is picking up the pieces after a fast-moving fire swept through their Cross River Ridge home last night.

The fire at the home of Ken and Lynn English broke out at around 6 p.m. while the couple was out celebrating her 60th birthday.

Fire officials are continuing to investigate the cause of the fire and won't comment on the findings so far.

Ken English says the house, which they have lived in for seven years, is a total loss.

The couple is staying with relatives for the time being.
