Damage is expected to be about $100,000.
The family did make it out okay, but six people have been displaced. The Red Cross is helping them out.
Finally, there was a scary moment on Craycroft Road near Speedway Boulevard.
A 72-year-old woman suffered minor injuries when her car slammed into a building, either because she accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brakes or due to some sort of mechanical malfunction.
