HARWINTON, CT (WFSB) -

A family in Harwinton escaped flames that tore through their home early Friday morning.

Officials said they were called to the home on Twenty Four Bumper Road shortly before 2 a.m. after the homeowner reported the house was filled with smoke.

Harwinton's fire chief said the call was initially dispatched as a chimney fire, but when crews arrived, they found heavy fire in the basement of the home.

The chief said fire crews spent several minutes attempting to locate the homeowner, who had made it safely out of the home, which slowed them fighting the flames.

Officials said the homeowner, his wife and two children, ages 3 and 11 days, all escaped the home without harm.

Crews were finally able to get the fire knocked down, but not before if heavily damaged the family's home.

Officials said no other injuries were reported.
