MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Fire responded to a big fire at a house in the 4400 block of Given Avenue at about 3 a.m. Saturday. Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control, but one suffered minor burns to his hand, leg and foot, Memphis Fire said. He was transported to Regional Medical Center but is not in critical condition. There were no civilian injuries, Memphis Fire said. The house was gutted, and a number of vehicles and jet skis were ruined. Two houses next door were also damaged. Neighbors were sleeping in their beds when they heard what they say sounded like an explosion — a big boom. “I thought it was a thunderstorm, so I just went back to sleep. ” But moments later, Damaris Delgado’s mom ran into her room to show her the house the house next door was on fire, and the bright flames were spreading quickly towards them. “It felt so hot in there, I just got up and ran.” Outside, neighbors gave the 10-year-old boots to wear, and the family and other neighbors watched as rescue workers battled the angry flames.  Damaris said she tried to take her mind off what was going on, so she prayed. But despite having to temporarily move away, a wise 10-year-old Damaris is still smiling and laughing. “We are all safe out of my family.” Red Cross provided assistance to two families affected. The house did have a working smoke alarm, according to Memphis Fire. The fire department is working to determine the cause of the blaze.
