Family Dodges Flames To Escape 2-Alarm House Fire

SOUTH SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A south Sacramento family narrowly escaped a 2-alarm house fire early Tuesday morning.

Fire crews arrived at a home on Grandstaff Drive to find flames coming from the roof and garage and a huge plume of smoke in the air.

Sally Dang, who lives in the home, said she woke up to flames.

“My room was burning up. I saw that there was like flames on my door, so I just ran out, grabbed all my family members and took them outside,” she said. “I can’t even explain what it felt like because I was worried about all my family members.”

It was actually a neighbor of Sally’s who called for help.

“I just heard like boom noises,” said Ashley Narayan. “I came downstairs, I called 911 and I woke up my father.”

Sally said everyone was asleep when the blaze broke out and she doesn’t know how the fire started.

The home sustained heavy damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
