Neighbors came to the rescue of a family when their home caught fire in northwest Harris County overnight. Around 2am, firefighters found heavy flames shooting from the second floor of a large home on T.C. Jester near Aspen. The homeowners were home. Neighbors saw the fire and woke the family up. They all got out safely.

Firefighters pulled two alarms to put out the fire, but managed to keep it contained mostly to an area around the three-car garage. Arson teams are now looking into it.
