A fire destroyed a home with a legal marijuana grow inside.

The fire started around 12:35 a.m. on North Eagle Street, near Montbello Central Park, in Denver.

When firefighters arrived, they said the home was fully involved.

One resident told Denver7 the smoke detectors woke his family up. He said he got everyone out, including his 8-month-old son, then went back in and rescued two dogs.

The man was treated and released at a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation.

The resident said they had a legal marijuana grow operation, but they said the fire started in another place in the house.
