Four people and a dog escaped a huge house fire Monday night. 

The fast moving flames broke out on Fairburn Road in southwest Atlanta. Fire crews said they had to wait before they went into the home because the heat melted power lines around the house. 

Everyone inside the home, including a pet dog, got out okay. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
