EL PASO,TX — A family in the upper valley had a very rude awakening to start their work week.
That's because shortly after 2:00 a.m. Monday morning, the kitchen of their home on La Mirada, off Doniphan and Redd Road, caught fire.
Two adults along with one child and their pets were able to escape safely.
The fire was not major but the home did suffer heavy smoke damage.
Firefighters say the fire may have originated in the dishwasher, but they are still investigating the official cause.
