FIREFIGHTERS: Family of Five Escapes House Fire in Everetts

By  | 

A family of five escaped an early morning house fire in Martin County that left their home charred.

Fire crews tell WITN they got the call around 3:40 Tuesday morning to 202 N. Broad St. in Everetts.

Crews said three children and an engaged couple escaped the fire and were not hurt.

The home was fairly old, and crews said its age contributed to the fact that it burned so quickly.

Crews were able to get the blaze under control before 5 a.m. and stayed on scene to watch hot spots.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
