Authorities say a man and his 2-year-old daughter have escaped unharmed from a Council Bluffs house fire.
The Daily Nonpareil reports that the fire was reported just after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Michael Large told the newspaper that he smelled smoke and then discovered flames on the outside of the house. He says he grabbed his daughter, ran outside and then across the street to safety.
The fire cause is being investigated.
