WESTON - A family of six safely escaped a fire in the middle of the night after being roused by a smoke alarm in their Weston home.
Weston Fire Chief Randy Tolles said the fire started around 1 this morning in the home of Otsego kindergarten teacher Kirstina Roberts and her five children, ranging in age from 8 to 15 years old.
The cause of the fire has not been determined, though it apparently started in the area of the water heater and furnace. Fire officials will return to the scene today to investigate, Tolles said.
Responding to the fire at 13183 Milton St. were firefighters from Weston and Milton Township. The fire was under control within 20 minutes after firefighters arrived, Tolles said. They remained on the scene until 3:50 a.m. to make sure all the hot spots were gone.
The fire caused "extensive" damage, estimated at $40,000 to $50,000, according to the chief.
The home is now uninhabitable, and the American Red Cross has offered the family assistance.
