Firefighters in Rowlett are investigating if fireworks are the cause of a house fire that forced a family from their home late Sunday night.
Firefighters did remove some fireworks from the home and said it’s a reminder about fireworks safety heading into the July 4th holiday.
Investigators aren’t sure how fireworks may factor into the fire at the home on the 7800 block of Creek Wood Court, where the investigation into the cause of the fire will resume Monday morning.
Firefighters said the smoke alarms did go off in the home, warning the family that they house was on fire. The family managed to escape with their pets and called 911.
Firefighters found the flames spreading through the attic and had to tear out the ceiling over a bedroom and bathroom to put the fire out.
Most of the damage is on one side of the house. The home remains taped off until investigators can determine what caused the fire.
