Walker FireMARNE, Mich- A family was able to escape from their burning home early Saturday morning.

The fire started around 4 a.m. at a home in the 12000 block of 3rd Avenue in Marne. According to fire officials at the scene the fire is believed to have started in a pool heater behind the home. The pool heater lost power, which caused a malfunction catching the pool heater on fire. The fire then spread from the pool heater to the rest of the house.
