A family of four is safe after a fire destroyed the back half of their Mesa home early Friday morning.
A woman in the house woke up and saw flames, and the smoke detectors then went off alerting the family in time to get out of the home, according to a Mesa Fire Department spokesman.
Firefighters said the fire started in back of the house near Main Street and Stapley Drive and that it was contained to that house only.
No cause had been determined and the investigation was continuing.
