DEXTER – A family in Dexter escaped with nothing but the clothes on their backs after a fire destroyed their home Wednesday morning.
Around 8 a.m. Dexter fire crews responded to a home on the Ripley Road.
Firefighters say an electrical issue may be to blame for the fire, which they believe started in the bedroom of the home.
The Red Cross is now helping a couple and their 6-year-old daughter.
The fire department and area residents are also collecting money and clothing to help the uninsured family.
