A family safely escapes their burning home in Harlingen on Wednesday morning.
Someone called fire crews to the home around 8:00am to South L street where firefighters found the home spewing heavy smoke. Firefighters quickly put out the flames, but were concerned the flames would spread because the homes in that location are spaced so close. Investigators believe the cause of the fire may have started in a rear laundry room.
