STANTON - A Stanton family without a home after a fierce fire burns their house to the ground.

At about 2:30 in the morning, the Martinez Family woke up to the smell of fire.  

Fire officials still don't know yet what started the fire.

The family does know it started in the middle of the room.

The fire was so big that it took officials 45 minutes to put out the flames.

"We'll see if we can make it, I guess we can, one day leads to another.  They say there's a reason for everything, you just can't figure out what it is," Terry Sawyers, a family member, said.

Unfortunately for the Martinez family, they lost everything they owned including three vehicles and a family pet.
