Newburgh family left homeless after fire
A fire Thursday morning has left a Newburgh family homeless.
It took about 45 minutes for Newburgh firefighters to control the blaze. Marlo McDonald, her two children and two other family members were able to escape without injury. Despite losing their possessions, the family is happy to have gotten out unscathed.
?It's material things,? says McDonald. ?I'll get it back.?
One of the possessions lost in the fire was insurance money from a November car accident that McDonald had intended to buy a new car with. McDonald says she hopes that money can be replaced.
Fire officials are investigating the cause of the flames. The Red Cross has put the family up at a hotel for the time being.
