Tragedy for one South Bend family this Christmas


Overnight a fire destroyed a South Bend home leaving a family with absolutely nothing just before the holidays.

The fire broke out on the 1100 block of Wilber street.

Family members say they were having a Christmas party in the home at the time.

They say eight kids live in that home and that all their belongings including school clothes and Christmas gifts were lost in the fire.

“We were all enjoying ourselves, and we ran to my brother's home to pick up some more gifts and the next thing we know we got a phone call that my sister and brother and law's home is on fire,” said Michael Royster.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Police say that no one was injured.
