JACKSON, Mississippi (WJTV) – A Jackson family is thankful that no one was hurt after a fire started in their home this morning.



Jackson Fire Department Office of Fire Investigations Division Chief Cleotha Sanders says firefighters were on the scene at the home on the 900 block of Berwood Drive at about 5:10am.  Family members told firefighters that all five family members had gotten out of the home safely.  No injuries were reported.  The fire was reported under control by 5:29am.

The homeowner told WJTV that the fire is believed to have started in the attic, most likely from the heater/AC unit.  A fire investigator is working to confirm the cause of the fire.
