A family has escaped from an early morning house fire in Burnie.
Fire crews from Burnie and Somerset responded to the call to a home off Devon Street in South Burnie about 6am on Wednesday.
Three crews responded and found a large amount of smoke coming from the old weatherboard home.
Police closed the intersection to allow fire crews to fight the fire.
A family and four dogs were safely evacuated from the home.
An investigation into the cause of the fire is expected to be undertaken later today.
