Scott and Rebecca Dunn lived at the home with their three children.  They were all able to escape thanks to smoke detectors alerting them to the fire.  Moments after they escaped the house, it went up in flames and became engulfed.

The family was transported to a hospital for treatment.  It took crews about a half hour to get the fire under control.
