(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A house fire left a family of six temporarily without a home.

Fire crews responded to the 200 block of Harvard Street shortly after 12:30 p.m. Saturday, to find smoke and flames coming up from the basement of the home.

Fire crews were able to extenguish the flames before it spread to the rest of the house.

No injuries were reported for any of the residents. However, the family did suffer the loss of two cats and a dog.

The American Red Cross was called to assist the family.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Temperatures started out on the mild side with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Monday was another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. With the dry conditions outdoor burning should be avoided Monday and Tuesday as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
