Family escapes Mandan house fire

A family of five, including three children, escaped a house fire late last night in Mandan after a vehicle parked outside started on fire.

Officials say a neighbor called to report the fire around 11:30 and crews were working to put out the blaze until about six Wednesday morning.

We’ve learned the flames quickly spread to the garage and then engulfed the entire house on Bluestem Drive.

The family's dog also got out unharmed, but all belongings were lost in the fire.
