JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson family is safe and sound after their home caught fire Tuesday morning. Firefighters were called to a home near the intersection of Mayes and Sage street around 7:15am.

Larry Lacey, a neighbor who witnessed the fire, says an electric utility pole near the house sparked with flames first. Lacey says sparks from the pole then spread to the home. Then Lacey and another neighbor woke up the family inside the house and the family was able to get out.  

Investigators with the Jackson fire department are still determining the cause of the fire.
