Additional information:
A mother and her 13 year old daughter escaped injury at 2:16 this morning after the family dog awakened them to smoke and fire in their house.  The residents escaped out a second floor window due to the heavy smoke and fire blocking the stairway. A neighbor awoken by their yells for help assisted them off the roof with a ladder before fire units arrived.
Upon arrival crews reported heavy fire and smoke showing and all occupants were out of the structure.  The high winds complicated the extinguishment of the fire and at one point forced firefighters to withdrawal from the house and use aerial apparatus to knock down the fire from the exterior. It is believed that the fire originated around the area of the living room fireplace and spread  throughout to the interior.  The family did have working smoke alarms.
 
The family dog which alerted them was not able to escape and perished in the fire. 
 
“The family was extremely lucky. First, their dog woke them, then the neighbor responding so quickly to rescue them from the roof.” Interim Fire Chief Matt Mace
 
  The American Red Cross assisted the family with housing, food, and counseling information.
