A fire destroyed a Box Elder family's home and all of its belongings earlier this week.
Allen Parisian, a Rocky Boy police sergeant, said he was sleeping in the bedroom of his Box Elder home about noon Tuesday when his 4-year-old son, Tanner Parisian, ran into the room and yelled that something was burning.
"I remember waking up and seeing black smoke on the ceiling," said Parisian, who had worked the graveyard shift the night before.
Parisian ran into the living room and saw that the couch was burning. He said Tanner started the fire with a disposable lighter that had been in the house.
