A Catoosa County family of five escaped their house fire without injury Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 25, after a cooking mishap demolished their Keith Road residence.

The fire broke out around 12:30 p.m., and crews worked feverishly to control the blaze, which ultimately burned half of the two-story structure down to the foundation.
