A Woodward family is out of its house and business after a fire destroyed them both overnight.

The man who rents the home said he tried to put out the flames, but it was too much.

Crews battled smoke and flames for hours at the home, south of Woodward, just off Highway 141 along 150th street early Thursday morning.

The man who lives in the home told Ch. 13 that he was sleeping and his wife was at work when the fire started.

He said one of his dogs woke him up.

The man said the fire started in the laundry room, he was able to get the flames out on his own but he said the fire had already spread inside the walls.

He told us the roof of the home had collapsed.map

The homeowner runs a demolition business, and all his tools for his business were in the shop, which was part of the home. When we talked to him, he was not sure what had been lost.

The fire department is investigating the cause of the fire.
