HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston family has its dog to thank for escaping the fire that engulfed its home.

KHOU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1mWy3ZH ) that a man, a woman and their two teenage children were asleep around 3:15 a.m. Saturday when their dog started barking.

That alerted the family to smoke from the fire inside their southwest Houston home.

The family made it out safely.

Houston firefighters are investigating what caused the blaze.
