We will have full coverage Monday of a fire that destroyed the Rosenquest family home, which sits at the end of a long driveway off Nursery Drive behind DeTar North. The home had been empty since Mr. Rosenquest died during the Christmas snow of 2004.

The family said they had turned off utilities to the home but had experienced problems in the past couple of years with vandals. No one was reported injured in the fire, and it remains under investigation.

We'll have full story in Monday's Advocate. Below is video from the scene. The final video is from Carrie Rosenquest, who shared some of the family history. The Rosenquests have owned that land for about a century. About 200 acres remain available for development.

We also are working on an unrelated report of a murder-suicide at Windsor Park apartments in Victoria. We'll have full story on that, too, in Monday's Advocate.
