A Donegal Township family escaped from a fire in their mobile home Tuesday morning after a 10-year-old girl roused her parents and alerted them to the blaze.

Stephen Roadman’s daughter Abbagail woke him around 7:30 a.m. and the family rushed from the home on Roadman Lane. Two of the family’s teenage sons had already left for school when the fire broke out.

Firefighters from Chestnut Ridge, Bullskin Township, Saltlick Township, Kecksburg, East Huntingdon Township, Mount Pleasant, Darlington and Ligonier were summoned to the scene to battle the blaze.

The family’s pet dog died in the fire. Stephen Roadman was treated for smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported.
