GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A family was able to escape a house fire, thanks to man’s best friend.

A fire broke out in an Atlas Township home about 3 a.m. on Wednesday. That’s in Genesee County.

The homeowners were awoken by their dogs and smelled smoked. They were able to get out of the house before anyone got hurt, officials said.

The home received so much damage from the fire and smoke that it is no longer livable, officials said.

Five departments responded to the scene to help put out the fire.

Officials are investigating a cause for the fire.
