A fire that overwhelmed a home in Brooklyn Park before dawn Thursday spread to a nearby field on a windy day amid dry conditions and forced the brief closure of a nearby main thoroughfare, authorities said. The blaze struck the home in the 10100 block of Georgia Avenue N., according to police. The family escaped unharmed, but the flames spread to a field, said police Inspector Todd Milburn.
