An early-morning fire destroyed a home at 1051 Vinewood Drive in St Joseph, Michigan on Sunday.

This story hits home for us here at WSBT 22 News. The fire was at the home of our longtime stringer who helps us cover news in southwest Michigan: Mark Parren.

Mark made it out safely and got two vehicles out, but other than that he says he's lost just about everything else.

Our thoughts are with Mark.
