MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - A family of four escaped a dangerous house fire in Miramar, Sunday morning, but have been left without a place to call home.
According to Miramar Fire-Rescue, the blaze sparked at a residence near Southwest 158th Avenue and 49th Court, at around 7 a.m.
Officials say the structure sustained extensive damage but the couple living there was able to safely escape with their two children.
Neighbor Prem Balwani said he’s grateful no one was hurt. “Everybody was just trying to call and help them out. This is crazy; nobody should ever have to go through this,” he said. “At least we are thankful that the family is OK. Everybody in the house seems to be OK. It’s just his property that they’ll just have to replace it.”
The family’s two cats are missing.
Investigators are attempting to determine what happened, while the American Red Cross helps the displaced family find a place to stay.
