Smoke alarms alert family to fire in Maricopa

MARICOPA, AZ (AP) -

The Maricopa Fire Department says smoke alarms alerted residents who fortunately decided to leave their home early Monday morning despite not immediately seeing any smoke.

The Fire Department says the residents saw flames shooting from behind their garage door only after the residents left their home.

The garage was fully engulfed in flames but responding firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading into the rest of the home.
