Blind Woman, Family Escape North Miami House Fire

 Authorities say a blind woman safely escaped from a house fire early Tuesday in North Miami.

The fire started about 3 a.m. at a home on Northwest 128th Street.

Family members say someone was cooking late Monday night and fell asleep with something on the stove. They woke up, smelled smoke and got out of the house while a neighbor called 911.

Six people, including two children, inside the home at the time all got out safely. 

Authorities say their dog and two cats also escaped.

The blind woman was treated at the scene and given oxygen, but everyone was OK.
