DECATUR -- A woman and her three children are homeless after their house caught fire. It happened in the 900-block of East Elmhurst.

Officials say it started in the side bedroom of the house. No one was home at the time, but returned to find a total loss.

The Red Cross is helping the family get through the next three days by giving them food, clothing and shelter. The cause is under investigation.
