A huge fire near Decatur Boulevard and Twain Avenue has left a family out in the cold overnight.

Firefighters were battling a roaring fire when 13 Action News reporter Parker Collins arrived on the scene. A family of six adults managed to escape the blaze without injuries but they did lose a cat in the fire.

Firefighters sprayed nearby houses with water in an attempt to stop the flames from spreading to other homes. The fire was said to have reached a gas line, which made it harder to extinguish.
