A fire broke out at a home on the southeast side of Rockford. Investigators are still trying to figure out why a fire started in the attic of a house located at 5585 Newburg Rd.

The owners of the home smelled something coming from the attic.

They quickly called 9-1-1. Crews were able to put out the blaze quickly, but the fire chief says the owners were lucky they were awake when the fire started because this could have been a much worse accident.
