Officer Sees Smoke, Saves Family from Fire

ODESSA - An Odessa family of four is without a home after flames destroyed their house. It happened just after midnight Friday morning in the 10,900 block of Drake.

By the time crews got to the house it was completely engulfed in flames. We're told an off-duty officer saw the fire, banged on the door of the home, and woke the family up.

They all escaped, but the home is a complete loss. It took five fire units to get the flames out.
