House Fire Leaves 11 Homeless

The Lubbock Fire Department is sending out a warning: Make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home - because it could save a life.

This message after a fire leaves a family of 11 homeless. Fire officials say there were no smoke detectors in a home at 2819 Auburn. It caught fire around 5:00 Saturday morning. The family was asleep in the home when they awoke to smoke. Luckily, they all escaped without injury. The Fire Marshall's Office say an overloaded extension cord covered up by clothing and bedding sparked the fire.

At least 11 people, including four children, were displaced by the fire. Red Cross is assisting the family.
