Posted: Updated:

Amarillo TX - A house fire on Adams Street in Amarillo leaves one family at a total loss this morning.

Amarillo fire officials say the blaze started in the living room Wednesday, when a space heater was too close to combustible material.

The home was occupied by 5 of 10 children who live there.

Damage has been estimated at around 15,000 dollars.

The Texas Panhandle Chapter of the Red Cross was able to provide the family with lodging, food, and clothing.
