HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) - Three family members have escaped safely from a fire that damaged their home in Hastings.

Firetrucks were sent to the house a little after 9 a.m. Tuesday. Firefighters say the blaze started when stain-soaked rags ignited on the front porch.

Deanna Peterson says she was home with two sons when she smelled smoke. She had to awaken one of them before they could flee with family pets.
