BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder firefighters were able to safely get a father and son out of their house at 3544 Kirkwood Place after it caught fire early this morning, according to officials.

Firefighters responded to the house after a neighbor reported seeing fire outside the house at 1:23 a.m. today, according to Boulder Fire Department spokeswoman Kim Kobel.

The fire then spread to the attic of the house. A father and son who lived in the house were inside sleeping and did not know there was a fire until firefighters were able to evacuate them from the building. Kobel said there were smoke detectors in the house but that they did not go off for some reason.
