A family was able to safely escape a house fire early this morning in Oakland.

Firefighters are still on the scene mopping up the fire that raced through a home on 90th Avenue and A Street just after 3 a.m.

Officials say the sound of the fire and smell of heavy smoke woke up a couple and their child.

The fire destroyed that home and damaged two others before crews could get it under control. The cause is under investigation, but firefighters say it does not appear suspicious.
