The home, which was destroyed Saturday in a fire, is the scene where police arrested brothers Michael and Robert Bever in July 2015 after officers found the bodies of the boys' parents and three siblings inside the home. Two other siblings survived.

Fannie Mae currently owns the home and has agreed to sell it for $50,000, which the city is attempting to raise.
