A fan is to blame for a duplex fire that has left two families without a place to live. Investigators say an electrical box fan overheated in a bedroom, sparking a blaze on the 300 block of Schutz Monday night. No one was hurt, but four adults and two kids were forced from their homes. Damage is estimated at $55,000. The Red Cross is helping the families get back on their feet.
