Family rescued from two-alarm fire

Posted: Updated:
SUBLIMITY, OR (KPTV) -

A mother and her three children were rescued as their Sublimity home engulfed in flames.

The family was asleep at 15476 Coon Hollow Rd. SE early Tuesday morning when a passerby noticed the roof was on fire. Fire crews later arrived to find heavy smoke pouring from the home's vents and chimney.

An officer ran inside the burning building to find the family still asleep. Their smoke detectors, while working, were not sounding off because the fire and smoke was above the ceiling. The mother, her three children and the family dog were awakened and promptly evacuated. Only the dog suffered injuries, and they were non-life-threatening.

Fire crews managed to save all the contents of the home, despite $75,000 worth of heavy damage.
