MIDLAND - A Midland family is safe thanks to the quick thinking of their neighbors.

A fire broke out in the flowerbed of a house on Avondale drive just after midnight. Neighbors noticed the flames and grabbed their garden hose to put it out.

Fire crews think it could have been started by either a cigarette butt or ash. The fire scorched an outside wall, and some smoke did get into the home.
