Tue, 20 Aug 2013 23:07:49 GMT — Fire crews battled a house fire in LaPlata Tuesday morning. Fire officials say they got the call just after 9 o'clock to a house fire on Pearl Street. Fire crews got to the scene just minutes later. Captain Jerry Thomas with LaPlata Fire tells us they were able to get the blaze completely put out after an hour and a half. We spoke with the family off camera, and they say this is a hard time, they're just in shock. The family consists of the mother who is expecting another child, the father and their son. They both just started taking courses online, and they lost their computers and $700 worth of text books.
Fire Marshal investigators were there Tuesday trying to figure out the direct cause of the fire.
