A Springs family was fast asleep when the blaring sound of their smoke alarm jolted them awake.

A fire had started inside their home in the middle of the night. A father and his two young children quickly escaped the home and called 911.

Firefighters arrived at the home on El Canto Drive around 2 a.m. and were able to get the fire out within an hour. A spokeswoman with the Fire Department credits the family for having a working smoke alarm, stating it likely saved their lives.

Parts of the house sustained heavy smoke damage, displacing the family.

Fire investigators now believe the fire was started accidentally by a juvenile.
