The Colony family escapes 2-alarm house fire

A family of five escaped a fire in The Colony early Friday morning.

The fire started around 6:30 a.m. at a home on Brandenburg Lane near Main Street.

Firefighters had to call for extra manpower because the flames were threatening a neighboring house.

But everyone, including a toddler and the family's dog, made it out safely.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
