A family was able to escape a destructive blaze that took down their home in Orono on Sunday. Three family members were inside the home when the fire began just before 7 p.m. All of them were able to safely escape the burning structure along with the family dog, an emergency responder on the scene told KARE 11. Long Lake Fire Chief Mike Heiland said it appears the blaze began in the garage of the home, but at this time a cause remains uncertain. The fire was massive - images from Sky 11 show flames lighting up the night sky for quite a distance. At least nine departments responded to the scene in Orono, but they were unable to save the home. It was reduced to rubble and is a total loss.
