They say smoke woke up a woman inside the home, who got her other three family members out safely.

Firefighters say this could have been much worse, as there are no working smoke detectors in the home.

They also say one of the family’s pets was killed in the fire.

The Red Cross has been contacted to help the family, but the occupants of the other side of the duplex are able to stay there.

Fire investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.
