BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

We have new information about a fire that forced a family of five out of their Woolmarket home early Wednesday morning.

Investigators believe the pre-dawn blaze sparked in the garage, and we’re told they’re expected to rule it an accident.

A WLOX News Now crew arrived at the Riverland Dr. fire scene this morning just after family members escaped the burning home. They reportedly heard smoke alarms ringing around 4:45 a.m. and quickly dashed outside.
