Officials in Aberdeen say four people escaped an early morning fire that destroyed a three-story house in the city.
Aberdeen Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Randy Meister says heavy flames were visible from three different sides of the house when firefighters arrived about 1:45 a.m.
Meister says four people who had been trapped on the roof managed to get down safely by jumping off a nearby roof landing on the second story of the building.
One man who escaped drove himself to a local hospital to be checked out, but there were no other injuries.
The fire's cause is under investigation.
