GRAYVILLE, Ill. (WFIE) - A family in Grayville has been displaced, the day before Thanksgiving, after their home caught fire.

It happened around 12:30 p.m. at 400 S. Court Street.

Crews had to direct traffic on Highway 1 because of the fire.

We’re told nobody was hurt.

A neighbor says, sadly, this isn’t the first fire the family has been through.

“They haven’t lived there very long, maybe a couple of years now,” neighbor Ina Sneed said. “This is the second time they’ve lost a home. So sad. Nice people.”

Officials say a fire marshal is on the way to investigate. They don’t think the fire is suspicious.
