A Woodbine family escaped injury when their house in the 7300 block of Woodbine Road caught fire early Friday morning, Winfield Fire Chief Tim Warner said.

Engines from Winfield, Mount Airy and Lisbon of Howard County responded with about 40 firefighters to the 2:19 a.m. blaze, Chief Warner said. The fire started at the rear of the two-story house around a wood stove and chimney and extended into an upstairs bedroom. The rest of the building suffered smoke damage.
