Five people were rescued from a burning home in Lynchburg early this morning. Crews were called to a home on Dudley Street, off of Florida Avenue just before 3:00 am. Officials say two adults and three children were able to escape out a second floor window onto the porch roof, where crews were able to help them down with a rescue ladder; 5 pets were also rescued. All received medical attention on site and no one had to go to the hospital. The fire was extinguished within 15 minutes; the cause of the blaze was an electrical fault on the first floor. The house is reported to be a total loss. The family is being assisted by the Red Cross.
