BIGGS, Calif. -

A family home and a second family's detached garage filled with keepsakes, hunting and boat gear was destroyed in Biggs today.

Michael and Kimberly Hudson's 11-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son were alerted by some of the neighborhood children that their home was on fire.

The Hudson family got out of the house safely but it is still unclear what started the fire or which building it started in.

The deck of a third home was also damaged.

We do know the fire first broke out at 3:20 p.m. Tuesday in the area of 7th and H Streets and quickly spread, damaging structures in its path.

The wind is blowing hard in the area.
