It happened just after 5:30 a.m. in a gated community in the area of Northern Avenue and 85th Drive. Chuck Figure, the homeowner, said the smoke detector woke him up.

The fire apparently started in the garage and spread quickly.

Figure said flames were already burning through to the hallway as he hustled his family and their pets outside to safety.

No injuries were reported.
