A fire in Barboursville leaves a family homeless.
Firefighters say the homeowner put gasoline cans in the garage and thinks the hot water tank caused vapors to ignite.
He grabbed a garden hose to try to contain the fire, but it spread quickly to the house.
The fire also damaged a neighbor's home and melted the vinyl siding.
The American Red Cross was called in to help the family.
The fire is under investigation.
