One family is lucky after a wildfire scorched a large portion of Hutchinson in Kansas.

In a photo posted to Facebook from the Kansas National Guard the home is untouched while fire burns around it.

They have cows to thank for their intact home. They had sprinklers running overtime for several weeks because the cows were eating their lawn and since they haven't fixed their fence yet.

When Tajchman returned home the cows were still grazing in the front yard.

So far six people have died. The wildfire is the largest in the state's history.
