Family saved from house fire

Posted: Updated:

A family of three is safe, thanks to a neighbor who alerted them about a carport fire that spread to their home, causing an estimated $250,000 in damage. Early on Sunday, August 17, a man loading his vehicle to begin delivering newspapers noticed the blaze and woke the residents of the house in the 8400 block of East Hawthorne Street.

One cat and two dogs died in the fire. The Red Cross is assisting the family with their needs.
