A family has no place to call home. Friday night their home went up in flames.
The blaze began around 7:15 p.m. at a house on Wales Street off Old Bainbridge Road. The family was home at the time, but made it out okay.
Neighbors who saw the flames erupt say it was frightening.
"I looked out the window. Me and my roommate Jude we heard this loud boom. We all came running outside and see this huge house engulfed in flames. Then he called 911 and they were here in like three minutes I would say, or less than that. It’s unbelievable; the garage was just engulfed. The whole house was just engulfed in flames."
Damage is estimated at $100,000. There is no word on what sparked the blaze.
