Mt. Pleasant and New London fire departments responded to a structure fire Tuesday evening at about 7 pm. The home of Joe and Nancy Christoforo at 2484 South Iowa Avenue received major damage to the second floor and roof and water damage to the first floor. The family was able to get out of the house safely. A cause has not been determined but it’s possible the fire started due to an electrical shortage in the attic. Fire crews remained on the scene until about 10 pm.
