An Alborn family returned to their home Tuesday night and found it was filled with smoke and on fire.
The St. Louis County sheriff's office said the fire happened at the home at 8916 Aerie Lake Road in Alborn shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Crews were able to contain the fire to the main floor bathroom and upstairs bedroom. The family living there also have two children, but no one was home at the time.
The fire appears accidental, the sheriff's office said. But the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
