A family lost its Ross Township home to fire Friday morning.
The fire started at a home along Lilac Avenue at 8 a.m.
Family members said the couple and their two children celebrated Thanksgiving, went Black Friday shopping and came home around 5 a.m. A couple of hours later, a neighbor saved the family from the fire.
"They were sleeping. A guy across the street came running over, banging on the door, yelling, 'Fire,'" said Maureen Heyl, the mother of one of the victims.
"I had to bang on it for a while. They eventually came out," said neighbor Paul Shields.
Channel 11 was told by fire officials that the blaze started in the back of the house.
Two neighbors plan to start a collection for the family.
