 A family escaped their apartment when a fire started on the balcony around 3:20 AM.  A passerby spotted the fire at 6000 Guion Rd and called 911.  Pike Township Fire responded and suspect embers from the grill  left on the balcony started the fire.  The two adults and two children weren't injured, but weren't able to go back into their apartment at Guion Creek.  Damage is estimated at $55,000.
