ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A fire that began in a garage destroyed a home in Rowan County on Wednesday afternoon.

The fire broke out at a home in 400 block of Robinson Road in East Spencer. The fire started in a garage attached to the home, eventually spreading to the house. 

"We went back in and opened up the garage door and the garage was on fire," Chi Chi Leazer said. "The fire ran up one side of it, it just moved so fast."

Roy and Chi Chi Leazer were able to escape the fire.  Two dogs also managed to escape and were not harmed.

Roy Leazer said he heard an explosion in the garage and then saw flames everywhere. 

Two cars in the garage were completely destroyed by the fire. 

The cause remains under investigation.

The Hanford-Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross is helping the Leazer family.

The home and nearly everything in it is considered a total loss, according to the Leazers.
