Posted: Updated:

TRAPPE, Md.- A Talbot County family has been burned out of their home but fire investigators credit working smoke alarms for saving their lives.

According to the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office, the fire broke out at around 2:30 am. Saturday at the two-story home on Chestnut Ridge Lane in Trappe.

Approximately 75 firefighters from the Trappe Volunteer Fire Company responded and had the fire under control in three hours.

Fire investigators say the fire started on the home's front porch and caused more than $500,000 in damage to the home and its contents.

Officials credit working smoke alarms for alerting the family of five so they could evacuate safely along with the family's dog.
