    Everyone was lucky to make it out when a house was destroyed by fire this morning.

    The blaze broke out around 4 a.m. at a single-family home on Hunt Meet Lane in Garnet Valley, Delaware County, Pa., according to firefighters on the scene.

    Firefighters arrived and found two cars on fire. The fire from those cars apparently spread to the home and spread throughout the attic.

    Everyone was able to get out of the home after hearing the fire outside.

    The damage was extensive. From SkyForce10 the entire side of the house where the cars were parked appeared charred as did at least two vehicles. Other parts of the home including the roof were also damaged.

    A resident who escaped the flames was still wearing her bathrobe as she told NBC10's Christine Maddela that much of the damage was done to her recently deceased son's room that still contained many of his belongings.

    The official cause of the blaze is pending investigation.
