It looks like a faulty extension cord may be to blame for an early morning fire that gutted an East Oak Lane daycare. The fire happened on the same day as the funeral for the daycare's namesake.

Lovie's Daycare Center is in the 1300 block of 71st Street. It's been owned and operated by the same family for 25 years. It was recently renamed after Lovie Williams, the grandmother of the owner.

Nobody was hurt in the fire. The owners hope to rebuild and reopen, but say they may need some help from the community to get the job done.
