A family safely escaped after a fire broke out in an east Erie home Sunday morning.

It was reported in the 100 block of E. 29th St. around 7 a.m.

Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the 2.5 story home.

The first floor suffered heavy damage.

A firefighter suffered a minor burn but was treated at the scene.

The Red Cross is currently helping the family because the home is uninhabitable at this time.
