Early morning fire in The Acreage destroys home, family gets out safely

THE ACREAGE, Fla. - An Acreage family is doing okay Saturday evening after making it out of their burning home earlier in the morning.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to the home at the 13800 block of 67th street North around 3 a.m.

Firefighters said heavy flames were going through the roof when they arrived.

Neighbor Jeoff Gann said he noticed the house was on fire after the electricity went out at his home and called 911.

“911 is asking me how many cats, how many dogs and stuff. I really didn’t know, but I’m telling them, you now I think two. He came out, I said did you get all the dogs, anybody else in the house, you know your house is on fire, etc,” said Gann.

Two adults and two dogs made it safely out of the home. They’re being assisted by family.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
