MEHLVILLE (KMOX) – An early morning, Christmas Eve fire in the 59-hundred block of Ponderosa Court in Mehlville sent two people to the hospital.

“There was one victim inside and they got that victim out. It was determined that there was a second victim in the house, in the basement. We got that victim out and both were safely transported to the hospital,” Mehlville Fire Captain Joe Cardona said.

Both victims, a man and a woman, had non life-threatening injuries.

Their home, however, was heavily damaged by the fire, which is believed to be electrical in nature. Cardona said the couple wouldn’t be able to move back in before the holidays are over.
