ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM-TV) A Jones County family is grateful to be alive after their home burned to the ground Tuesday.

Shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday night a wood framed home on Rogers Road went up in flames outside of Ellisville, authorities said.

Jones County Fire Coordinator Dan Mckenna said it looks as if the fire started from a bedroom and spread throughout the house.

McKenna says the cause of the fire is unknown and still under investigation.
