(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A fire damaged two homes at the intersection of North 21st and Mulberry Street late Wednesday night. 

An inspector from the St. Joseph Fire Department said the fire likely started in a second floor bathroom and the flames quickly spread to the neighboring house. 

It was not immediately known if the house where the fire started was vacant or occupied.

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.
