FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Fort Wayne fire officials say a cooking fire started in a home on Peppertree Trail early Friday morning.

Fire crews were called to the home on, 3020 Peppertree Trail, just after 3:15 a.m., the Fort Wayne Fire Department (FWFD) says, where crews saw smoke coming from the front of the house. All five residents of the home, one adult, and four children were able to escape the home before crews arrived, the FWPD said.

Crews found the fire in the kitchen and were able to put the flames out quickly, the department said. The Red Cross is helping the family.
