SOLON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A family of four was able to escape a house fire in northern Kent County Monday morning.
The fire started just before 6 a.m. at a home in the 800-block of 21 Mile Road near Albrecht Avenue NE near Kent City.
When firefighters arrived on scene, they saw flames coming through the roof.
Officials on scene said the homeowner woke up and discovered the fire which had started where the chimney and roof met. The homeowner had installed a new wood stove the previous day which is suspected to have caused the fire.
The homeowner, his wife, two children and a dog all made it out safely.
The fire rekindled the next day around 5:15 a.m. but was knocked down a short time later.
