CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Two people survived a fire that destroyed their house Tuesday night in Cape Girardeau County.

The call came in sometime before 7:20 p.m. Tuesday for a house at 7246 Highway N near Delta.

Delta Fire Chief Alvin Frank Jr. says two people were sleeping at a home on Hwy. N outside of Delta when they woke to find the living room on fire. They were able to escape, but the husband did not even have shoes.

Firefighters believe a kerosene heater caused the fire.

Neighbors called 911 after seeing smoke. Flames were taking down part roof as crews arrive on scene.

The home is a total loss.

The Allenville Baptist Church is accepting donations on behalf of the couple. Call Pastor Phil Thompson at 573-794-2368 to donate.

    The Mississippi State Department of Health reported there are now 12 cases of West Nile Virus in our state Thursday morning.
