BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Firefighters are working to put out a house fire on Whitetail Drive north of Bozeman.

The dispatch call came in around 5 am, fire crews say. The family says they woke to their smoke dectector going off, and could see flames coming from the garage.

The family of four safely made it out of the house before fire trucks arrived.

Eight departments in Gallatin Valley responded, but they initially had a hard time securing water sources because there were no fire hydrants nearby.

After some quick thinking, firefighters say they pulled water from a nearby pond, and created a makeshift pool for trucks to fill up.

It took only an hour to put out the flames, but crews spent the rest of the morning trying to contain any hot spots and smoke.
