Multiple agencies responded to a house fire on Sweetgum Road in Hazel Green. We're told the call came in around 2:45 Tuesday morning. 

Firefighters were still working to put out hot spots around 5 a.m., but no one could enter the home because the roof was not stable. Officials are calling the home a total loss.  

Authorities tell us the mother and daughter who were inside the home made it out safely. They did inhale some smoke but were not taken to the hospital. Red Cross is assisting the family. 

We're told crews believe the fire started in the garage before spreading to the home. Investigators are now working to determine the cause of the fire.
