Heavy smoke and flames were reported coming from the roof.

All seven family members were able to get out of the home without injuries.

The family has 3 special needs adults and say they are very thankful they made it out safely.

Had it not been for neighbors who saw the smoke coming from the back of the house, those inside wouldn’t have known as early as they did.
