(Moorhead, MN) -- A Moorhead family is speaking about their experience regarding a garage fire which affected their home early Tuesday morning.

The Moorhead resident, who is named Kent, was woken up by his son early Tuesday, saying a vehicle was on fire. Kent says both he and his son attempted to quell the flames, but called 911 after the fire grew out of control.

"Things happened so fast", said Kent, "The car started with four inch flames and then all the sudden they were two feet high. I was dialing 911 and trying to get people out of the house. It was a nightmare, it was chaos."
