SHERMAN, Tex. -- Firefighters are crediting a smoke alarm for saving six people early Friday morning in Sherman.

Officials say the fire broke out in a duplex in the 300 block of North Carl Avenue around 5:30 Friday morning.

A smoke alarm woke a family of six up in one of the duplex homes. Another man in the other home also got out safely.

"With this fire, the husband came up and told firefighters everyone got out safely, including three children," Sherman Fire Chief Jeff Jones said.

No word on a cause or how much damage was done. The fire is under investigation.
