Fire destroys Troy, IL home; 3 escape

Three people were able to escape a fire that swept through their Troy, Illinois home just before 5:00am Thursday. Firefighters remained at 31 Stonebrooke in Troy, Illinois for three hours.

Flames could be seen shooting through the roof of the home by neighbors. Fox 2 reports three people got out safely. They are Annie Herrin, her daughter Courtney and her boyfriend, Paul Coopman. Coopman reportedly was awakened by an explosion coming from the garage and was able to get the women out safely. There's still no word on a cause but firefighters are not considering it a suspicious fire.

Fox 2 reports three months ago the family buried Annie's husband, 47-year-old Jimmy Herrin, died from pancreatic cancer. A trust fund for the family has been set up at US Bank in Troy, Illinois.
