Family left homeless, 2 pets killed in Sunday morning fire

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County family is devastated after fire ripped through their house overnight, leaving them homeless and killing two family cats.

The fire broke out around 5:30 a.m. at a home on Erskine just west of Alcove.

When volunteer firefighters with West Carlisle and Shallowater arrived, smoke was pouring out of the house.

The family tells us the two adults and four children were able to get out, but they lost two cats in the fire.

They say they're lucky to be alive, but now they're trying to pick up the pieces after losing everything they owned.

The family says a fund will be set up Monday at Lubbock National Bank in the name of Debra Lovell for April Modesto.
