BRECKENRIDGE, Minn (KFGO AM) -- A family of five is safe after a fire destroyed their home in north Breckenridge, early this morning.
Smoke detectors are credited with waking them and giving them time to escape the two story house.
The fire was reported just before four.
When fire crews arrived, flames were shooting from the home.
The fire is believed to have started on the first floor and fire crews thought they got it knocked down right away.
But when it was discovered in the attic, additional equipment had to be brought in, to bring it under control.
Investigators have yet to figure out how the fire started.
