    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Seven people have escaped from a house fire that was reported by a Des Moines police officer.

    Des Moines television station KCCI says the officer was driving through the area around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and noticed the flames.

    Officials say four adults and three children inside the home fled to safety outside after they were alerted by smoke detectors.

    Fire officials believe the blaze was caused by an electrical problem and started in the house attic.
