BRANDON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Brandon firefighters were on the scene of a massive house fire on Eastwood Drive across the street from Brandon Baptist Church on Tuesday morning.

All lanes on Highway 80 were blocked at Edgewood Crossing as firefighters worked to control the flames. The roadway is now back open to traffic.

According to officials the family was able to get out safely. They are being treated for smoke inhalation but will most likely not have to go to the hospital.

The family says they did have smoke detectors, but they didn't go off.

Firefighters are still working to put out hot spots inside the home before they are able to go inside and survey the damage.
