A woman and her children were able to escape a fire in their home early Tuesday, thanks to the sound of barking dogs. The barking awoke her and alerted her to the fire.
The Fort Wayne Fire Department was called to the 1813 Glenwood Ave., near North Anthony Boulevard, at 1:10 a.m. Tuesday. The fire was bought under control quickly, and firefighters were able to contain the damage to the kitchen on the first floor.
No one was injured. The home sustained considerable smoke damage.
The fire is under investigation.
