Christmas Tree May Be to Blame for Irving House Fire

Charlotte Fire Department found two mobile homes on fire in the Bellhaven Estates in the 7100 block of Bellhaven Boulevard off Brookshire Blvd.

Investigators don't know how the fire started.

17 families are homeless this Christmas Eve after a fire destroyed their homes Sunday morning. They said the apartments were either burned or heavily damaged by water. It took about 24 firefighters to put out the flames.

Susan Hilliard, a resident of the complex, said she saw smoke coming out of the building.

Apple 'purposely' slows down old iPhones
As much as this may sound like a move of an evil corporation, the fact is that actually Apple did the right thing for its users. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are not safe from this and have been subject to similar treatment through the iOS update 11.2 as well.

The Phoenix Fire Department's crisis response teams are now working with the displaced residents to provide them housing.

"We ran into three frozen hydrants due to the weather", said Chicago Fire District Chief of Special Operations Tim Walsh.

The Red Cross will find the family temporary house while officials investigate.

An investigation determined the fire began in the garage after a small engine backfired, igniting nearby flammable liquids, he added.
