Tampa, Fla. (970 WFLA)-Firefighters are crediting smoke detectors for alerting a New Tampa, family of five, that their house was on fire.
Tampa Fire Rescue says because of the working smoke detectors everyone had time to escape without injuries, including the family dog.
The home in the 10000 block of Estuary Drive is a total loss, no one was injured. Neighborhood friends are providing the family with a place to stay.
Tampa fire rescue says it's another example of how smoke detectors save lives.
