Craighead County Family Escapes House Fire

October 4, 2003

A Craighead County family escapes with their lives after fire rips through their home.

The Miles family has lost everything tonight except the most important thing...their lives.

When firefighters arrived at the Miles home.... flames were already out of control.

Fred Miles and his family had just sat down for dinner when they smelled something burning.

They went outside and saw a fire in the car port and by the time firefighters arrived it had spread to the rest of the house.

The home on Craighead County Road 304 is a total loss and at this point fire officials say they don't know the cause of the fire.
