A family has escaped an early morning house fire in Ashburton.
Four fire crews rushed to reports of a fire at a Chalmers Ave house at 6.20am.
It's not yet known how the family were alerted to the fire, which appears to have been well-involved in the roof area, but they managed to safely evacuate. There have been no injuries.
A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokesman said firefighters were still on the scene.
