A two-alarm fire overnight has destroyed a Dedham home.

Firefighters received the call just after midnight Tuesday morning for a fire on Sanderson Avenue. Crews from four towns worked to battle the blaze. 

There was heavy fire in the attic which lead to the roof of the structure collapsing.

Fox 25 is reporting neighbors rushed to the house to help the family. The station says the owners of the home have small children.

A cause of the fire has yet to be determined. 

Dedham Patch will bring you more information as it becomes available.

Hi Matt do you or Liz know how anyone can reach out to the family to offer help? Please let me know. As a community we should help our fellow citizens. I'd like to do something. Thanks.

Hi Dan -- still looking for information on this; I haven't seen a fund or something similar established as of yet, and DFD also did not have any info on this as of noontime today, but will provide any updates on it as it becomes available!

Thanks Stephen I actually picked up a few things for the kids and dropped them to friends who know the family. Thanks for sharing. I hope everything works out. I'm glad they all got out safe.
