BILLINGS - A woman and two children escaped a house fire Thursday morning in central Billings. 

The fire was reported at about 7:40 a.m. at 51 Rhea Lane. 

The woman and two children were outside of the house when the Billings Fire Department arrived minutes later. 

Battalion Chief Ed Regele said the front door of the home was open when they arrived and the woman and children were standing outside. 

Fire officials later said it appeared the fire was started accidentally by combustibles left on top of the kitchen stove.

There was fire damage in the kitchen and smoke damage to the rest of the house.

The resident says that they have lost everything: "Everything in our house is a total loss."

The amount of damage was estimated at $200,000.

There were no injuries reported.
