Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

WELLINGTON, FL (WFLX) - A late night fire destroyed a family's home Tuesday located on Pacer Circle in Wellington.

The family woke up to smoke alarms sometime after 11 p.m. and were able to escape without injury. Their home sustained extensive damage.

Fire investigators said they arrived on the scene right before midnight and found heavy smoke and fire coming from the garage area. Fighting the fire became difficult when crews discovered there were no fire hydrants in the area.

Firefighters rescued a cat from inside, but a second cat is still missing.

The family does have a place to stay.
