SIOUX CITY, Iowa — A western Iowa family is safe after a fire trapped them inside their home.
Firefighters rescued a family from the rooftop of their burning home in Sioux City’s Morningside neighborhood Wednesday night.
The fire started in the front entryway of the house, leaving a mother and her three kids unable to escape.
They headed to the second floor balcony, where they were trapped until fire crews arrived.
“They were able to get a ground ladder off, and with the assistance of a few PD officers we were able to get the occupants down,” said Dan Cougill of the Sioux City Fire Department.
Fire officials say the home sustained about $10,000 worth of damage.
