A family of six in Meridian Township escapes an early morning fire thanks to an attentive neighbor.
It happened around 3:15 a.m. on the 3900 block of Dayspring Court.
The cause isn't yet known: it either started in the garage, or the attic above the garage.
The Meridian Township Fire Department says it doesn't appear suspicious.
A neighbor noticed the flames and pounded on the front door until the family awoke.
All six and their pets made it out safely.
The Red Cross is now helping the famly.
