With these frigid temperatures about to hit Central Texas, the one thing you don't want to be without is power to your home.

KWTX's Rhyan Henson reported that a family of three were without power early Monday morning due to a fire.

The small fire occurred in the 3000 block of Fedal Avenue in Waco around 1 AM, and was the result of a branch falling on a power line according to a Waco fire official.

Oncor had the power cut off within the hour to stop the downed line from aiding the fire . Officials reported the family should have power back later on into Monday.
