DOWAGIAC Fire left a family homeless after Sunday night’s storms.

The initial call came in just before midnight for a home in the 300 block of W Division in Dowagiac, near the hospital.

A family of seven, with five young boys, lived in the home. Fortunately they made it out safely, thanks to early warnings from smoke detectors, but their home was destroyed.

Fire crews say the winds from Sunday’s storms made it difficult to fight the blaze. Five departments were on scene. At this point, they don't know how it started, or even where in the house.
