A 63-year-old woman was forced to climb out a window to escape a fire that destroyed her house. It happened at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday.

Blackman-Leoni Township Public Safety officers tell us the woman came out of her bathroom to find her living room on fire.

The house in the 1100 block of Wayne Street is a total loss. Three dogs are missing, but the woman suffered only minor injuries as she was climbing out the window.

The cause of the fire is unknown. The investigation is continuing.
