A family of five escaped a one-alarm house fire in Pleasant Hill that started in a motor home early this morning, a fire captain said.

Crews responded around 12:40 a.m. to reports of a fire at a house in the 700 block of Slater Avenue, according to Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Capt. Robert Marshall.

Fire personnel arrived on the scene to find a motor home fully engulfed in flames that had spread to a house and ripped through the home’s attic, Marshall said.

The family of two adults and three children inside had safely evacuated before fire crews arrived on the scene.

They were likely displaced by the blaze, the captain said.

Firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring homes and got it under control in about 20 minutes, Marshall said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Our laundry room caught on fire same night about 30 minutes before this fire. My heart goes out to this family. This was one of the scariest moments of my life rushing to get out of the house. We now deal with the smoke smell and hassle of Everything else- it’s minor compared to what might of happened. After the fire dept was at our house they said they were on their way to p.hill. Glad we are all safe
