Fire crews are on the scene of a house fire near Chestnut and Floral.

The family of five was sleeping in the home when the fire broke out. They told fire officials they smelled smoke last night before going to bed. The smoke and flames woke them up this morning. By the time firefighters arrived -- the home was gutted.

Fire officials say the family is lucky they got out alive because there were no working smoke detectors inside.
