DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A fire destroyed an Iowa couple's home and forced them to relocate nine years after a flood made their previous home unlivable.

WHO television reports Keith and Judy Steger's home in Delaware County was damaged by fire on Friday after something on the stove caught fire.

The Stegers and their seven children spent the weekend trying to salvage what they could from the home.

In 2004, the Stegers lost their home in Elkader to flooding.

The couple's son, Jeremy Steger, says it's hard to express what it's like to lose a home. He says the family just has to keep moving forward.

For now, the Stegers are planning to live in another building on their property.
