Our partners at Bainbridgega.com found out that this home at 1006 Powell Street caught fire just before midnight Sunday night.
Sylvester and Rosa Landy and six of their great grandkids - ranging from 2 to 12 years of age - ran from their home after they spotted the flames.
Landy says when she entered the back bedroom, flames were filling the back window from a fire *outside* the home.
Fire officials confirm the fire started outside, jumped into the attic area and spread. The family is receiving help from American Red Cross and will stay at the Charter Motel for the next 3 nights.
