RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Eight people, including five children, escaped from a house fire in Rapid City.

Fire officials say the family had an escape plan and the children, ages 3 to 13, following the route to safety Sunday afternoon. The fire apparently started in a garage below the home and spread to the living area. The cause is under investigation.
