Family of three escapes injury in South Sacramento blaze


SACRAMENTO -- A pre-dawn fire on Moorefield Way in South Sacramento displaced a family of three Monday.

Bonnie Shui and her husband were sleeping when their son woke them up by yelling that there was a fire outside.

Shiu's son, Jesse Chan, said he heard noises coming from outside the front door around 1 a.m. and noticed flames coming from the porch. That's when he ran to his parents' room and woke them up.

Chan and his father attempted to douse the flames with water from the garden hose but to no avail.

"Me and my dad, we tried to put out the fire with the hose, but it didn't work... the flames were just too big," Chan said.

As the blaze spread to the second story, Shui quickly dialed 911. She was able to grab her purse and their small dog before escaping through the garage. All three managed to get out of the house without injury.
