HUDSONVILLE, Mich. - Three kids are safe after their home was destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning. 

According to Fire Chief Dan Hamming with Georgetown Fire, it happened just before 9 a.m. and started in the garage.

The kids were home alone at the time the fire started. Their ages were not immediately disclosed, but the older sibling noticed the fire and got the rest of the kids out safely. Their mother arrived at the home a short time after.

Hamming says a passerby called in the fire and crews were able to get on scene and knock it down in about 20 to 30 minutes. The house is a total loss.
