A family is safe after late night fire at a home on the 800 block of Kennedy Street on Friday.

The Alice Fire Department worked on the house until the fire was completely extinguished.

“We are relieved to have the fire under control and thankful the owners were home and able to discover the fire early enough to allow us to save the home. Even though a portion of the home has damage the contents are safe and so is the family,” said Alice Interim Fire Chief and Fire Marshal. “We encourage all residents to always have a working smoke alarm and a plan for emergencies."

No injuries were reported. Preliminary investigation is indicating the fire was accidental and isolated to a portion of the home.
