SAN DIEGO – A family of five rushed out of their home as a fire spread from their garage to the house Friday morning, authorities said.

The garage fire started on Deauville Street near Roanoke Street about 4:50 a.m.

Four adults and a child were able to get out of the house, according to a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher.

By the time the fire was out it, it had caused about $200,000 in damage to the home and $100,000 in damage to its contents, the dispatcher said.

FOX 5 spoke to the family, who said nearly everything they owned was lost.

"There was  a Christmas tree and presents, now it's just completely black," JD Evans said. "We did a lot to get into this house, a place where we could call home."

Fire investigators were working to determine the cause of the fire.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for the family.
