Five Hour Fire

Investigators are still trying to find the cause of an early morning house fire south of Amarillo.

But the people living there know one thing for sure, they wished they would have had working smoke detectors.

This family was lucky.

The fire pretty much stayed contained to the garage.

But when the blaze started around three Wednesday morning and things could have gone worse.

This is a fire that took five hours to put out.

No one inside was injured but two kittens did suffocate in the smoke.

The family has smoke detectors but they took the batteries out of them because they kept beeping whenever dinner was cooking, a move they regret now.
