(Rose Park-AP) -- A home is destroyed and two people are hospitalized after an overnight fire.
The fire department was called just before two a-m after residents awoke to a fire in the first floor of their home.
Four adult family members lived in the home. One woman had to escape through the window of the home and was sent to the hospital with third degree burns on her hands.
Another family member was also hospitalized for burns.
Fire officials think the fire may have started after a woman who was smoking fell asleep in bed. But they are still investigating the fire's cause.
