Cape Girardeau firefighters were called to the scene of a house fire at 916 N. Fountain St. just before 2 p.m Monday. Fire chief Rick Ennis said he believed the fire started on the second floor and that he hoped to have some idea of the cause soon. A family of five who lived in the house, including three small children, all got out of the two-story brown brick home in time. The fire caused major damage to the house. Dietrich Hughes, who lives in the home, said she came home from work to find the building on fire.
