Family escapes from house fire

A family of three escaped without injuries from a 2:27 a.m. house fire today on Kiln-DeLisle Road.

Rachel Kately, her husband and teen-aged daughter were alerted by a smoke detector, said George Mixon, coordinator of Harrison County Fire Services.

A likely electrical malfunction started the blaze around a television and entertainment center. Mixon said electrical power service was disconnected and the family is making temporary living arrangements with relatives.
