Household of eight escapes home hearth in northwest Harris County

KATY, Texas – A family escaped after their northwest Harris County home caught fire Friday and nearly trapped them all inside.

Firefighters were called just before 2 a.m. to a home in the 6900 block of Prairie Village Dr.

The family inside woke up to smoke and fire alarms, fire officials said.

Flames blocked the front entrance and garage, so the family had to escape out the rear of the home.

Fire officials said the home did not have working fire alarms.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
