WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Fleurands of West Palm Beach say that if they went to the early church service they normally attend, they never would've seen the fire that broke out in the home off of Woodbridge Lakes Circle.
It started right behind the clothes dryer, and didn't spread very far.
Firefighters quickly responded to put out the flames. They say the family didn't have any working smoke detectors near the origin of the fire. Had they not been home at the time, firefighters say the fire could've spread much farther.
The Fleurands live in a townhouse connected to several others. If the fire wasn't caught early, they say it could've spread to their neighbors' homes.
The Red Cross is assisting the family until it's safe for them to return home.
