An early morning fire in Bay View is evidence of how important it is to have working smoke detectors.
Fire officials say it was an alarm that alerted a man to a fire inside his house, which is located just south of Howell and Lincoln. The fire broke out just after 3:30 AM. The man inside was able to escape the home unharmed. However, the fire did cause an estimated $120,000 in damage.
Inspectors are going through the house to determine the cause of the fire.
