BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Four children and their father escaped an early morning house fire on Thursday morning in Birmingham.
The children are pretty young at 11, 8, 4 and 3. Firefighters tell us they heard the smoke alarm, woke up, and the oldest one helped his younger siblings escape through a window.
The fire started just before 3 a.m. in the 7400 block of 2nd Avenue South. Battalion Chief Donald Jones says the dad made it out the front door. When firefighters arrived, he told them his three sons and daughter were inside.
Firefighters searched the home, starting outside, and found the children across the street at a neighbors house. They had gone over there to get help and call 9-1-1.
Jones says no one was hurt in the fire. It is estimated about 20 percent of the home is damaged.
Jones says the official cause of the fire is under investigation but he believes it started in the kitchen.
