LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An East Lubbock family is safe after a fire destroyed one room in their house and smoke damaged the rest.

Fire crews tell KCBD NewsChannel 11 that the family is safe and unharmed because of the working smoke detectors installed in their home.

Three fire teams responded to the home near East 4th Street and Beech Avenue around 7:00 p.m. Wednesday.

The homeowners tell us they are insured and just thankful everyone is okay. There is no word on the cause of the fire.
