ALTON - A family of seven has been left homeless after a blaze razed their home Wednesday in Alton.
Officials said no one was home at noon when the fire happened. Neighbors said high winds helped fan the flames.
The family said they have nothing left. The Red Cross helped them rent a hotel room for three days.
