A fire on Rockford’s south east side destroyed one home and damaged two others.

Crime scene tape was strung out front of what’s left of 5533 Sedgeway Drive, Sunday morning. Bricks on the home are blackened and you can see through the the roof after crews say the fire spread from the garage just after 11:00, Saturday night.

Everyone inside, including the two dogs, made it out safely.
