Family Escapes Overnight Fire Sparked By Cigarette

A family woke up just in time early Wednesday morning to escape their burning Nicholasville home.

Firefighters say a man fell asleep while smoking a cigarette inside his home on Orange Blossom Court in the Orchard subdivision.

A smoke detector eventually woke up a woman and two children also inside the home.

The man who was smoking suffered minor burns to an arm and stomach.

He went to the hospital to be checked out.
