After 40 minutes, firefighters were able to knock most of the flames down and go inside. While the fire was able to get under control, officials say the home and all of its contents are a "total loss."

Thankfully, the four adult occupants and a dog were able to get out of the home without injuries. The American Red Cross will provide assistance for the four residents.
