CHESTER, CT (WFSB) -

Five people, including two young children, are safe after a fire inside their home overnight.

The fire broke out around 3:30 a.m. on Castle View Drive.

The family said it appears as though it started in the bedroom of their one-and-1/2-year-old son.

He, his three-year-old brother, grandparents and uncle all escaped the home.

Family members took the one-and-1/2-year-old to a local hospital to be checked out as a precaution.

Neighbors said they're happy everyone was able to escape.
