    A homeowner in Federal Way woke up to the smell of smoke and what sounded like a loud explosion early Tuesday morning. 

    All three residents of the house on the 33700 block of 37th Avenue Southwest are okay but firefighters say the house may be a total loss. Firefighters battled the fire for about an hour and were able to get it under control around 2:00 a.m.

    Video from the scene shows flames shooting through the roof.

    Firefighters say the cause of the fire is under investigation and they don't know what that explosion sound was or if it's connected to the fire.
