SAN ELIZARIO - A family is homeless after fire gutted their home.

The blaze broke out last night at 760 Herring off Socorro Road.

Deputies arrived to find flames coming out the roof.

A 16 year old at the home said she noticed smoke and fire coming from a back bedroom.  She immediately went to a neighbor's house and called 911.

Investigators say an electrical problem in a ceiling caused the fire.

The homeowners have no insurance.  The home is a total loss.

The Red Cross is helping the family of five with living arrangements.
