Des Moines police are looking for a local woman on child endangerment charges after a weekend house fire. Two Des Moines brothers awoke early Saturday morning about 4, smelling smoke, and discovered it wasn’t their house on fire, but the one next door. They couldn’t rouse anyone and broke in, found five sleeping children and herded them all to safety, well before the fire department was called. Police were called too. The mother of the children, 25-year-old Delores McGregory wasn’t home when the blaze broke out. No adult was, according to police. They’ve issued a warrant for McGregory’s arrest on five counts of child endangerment. She’s already wanted on a previous warrant for the same charge.
