A family of four safely escaped from their burning home in Girard early Sunday.

Flames broke out at a home on Maple Avenue just before 3 a.m.

A neighbor tells 21 News he called 9-1-1 and alerted the family of the fire by knocking on their door.

Crews from Girard, Liberty, and Weathersfield were called in to help fight the flames.

They got the blaze under control. There’s no word yet on what caused the fire.
