A family escaped injury when their home caught fire at about 7 p.m. Saturday.

The fire occurred at a house on Northwind Drive near the Vickers Drive intersection in northeast Colorado Springs.

Firefighters quickly knocked down the flames and brought the situation under control.  Authorities on the scene said one firefighter helped the family who lives in the home escape.

Investigators have yet to determine what caused the fire.  A damage estimate at the home wasn't available from authorities late Saturday night.
