LAKE MARY, Fla. - A family awakened to the sound of explosions discovered the garage of their Lake Mary home on fire.

The fire broke out early Wednesday in the 100 block of Tralee Court near Lake Doom.

According to fire officials, a woman and her teen son and daughter heard noises and woke up, finding the garage ablaze.  They tried to extinguish the fire but could not and called 911, officials said.
