A family escaped their Valley Mills home as flames took over early Friday morning.

Firefighters from Valley Mills and Clifton arrived just before 4:00 a.m. to the home on South 8th street.

When they arrived the home was engulfed.

Neighbors were able to go help crews and the family. The couple and their two dogs were able to escape unharmed.

Witnesses say the couple is renting and had just moved in this past weekend.

The home is a total loss. The family cars in the driveway were saved but that was it according to neighbors.

The cause of the fire will be determined after hot spots are put out.
