A mom and her three kids were inside a home near Grand and Greenway in Surprise when they said they smelled smoke. They all managed to make it out of the home.

Nevertheless, firefighters had a hard time getting the fire under control. A car in the home's carport even exploded.

Fire crews say the home was a total loss. Firefighters were able to save the family's chicken coups in the backyard.
