The pictures and video of this horrendous house fire in West Michigan are terrifying.

At about 4:30 A.M. on the 4th of July, Toni Jolman woke up to her dogs barking and a newspaper delivery man banging on the door yelling that her house was on fire.  She told Wood TV 8 that without that man banging on the door, her family may not be alive today,

I let them (the dogs) in my room, heard a banging on the door, it was an older guy.  I kind of got scared, being a female answering the door at that time. He screamed that my garage was on fire.

Seven people including a 15 week old baby and the family dogs were able to get out of the house before a propane tank exploded.
