2 children escape fire at Henderson home

Two children were sleeping when a smoke detector alerted them to a fire in a home Saturday morning, the Henderson Fire Department said on Facebook.

The children escaped to a neighbor’s house, the department said.

The fire happened at about 6 a.m. at a home near Boulder Highway and Warm Springs Road, authorities said.

Nobody was injured, but the fire, which was ruled an accident, caused about $50,000 worth of damage.
