HILLTOP - A Fayette County family is homeless Saturday after an early morning fire destroys its home.
Three fire departments responded to a call on the 1900 block of Prudence Road near Hilltop just after 2 a.m. The homeowner told Newswatch that her daughter said she smelled something burning. When they looked outside a back door, flames rushed inside.
Everyone inside escaped, including their dog, but the home is a total loss.
One firefighter was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation. Officials will work to determine what caused the blaze.
