One Onslow County family is likely thanking their neighbors for saving their lives after a house fire ripped through their home this weekend.
Fire Marshal Brian Kelly said crews were called to a house on Falcon Crest Road Sunday morning to find a home in flames.
Kelly said neighbors saw flames licking at the house, and one ran over to see if anyone was home and another called for help.
Investigators said a family of seven was inside the home as the fire was burning.
Once the family got out of the house, some used garden hoses to try and contain the blaze until fire fighters could get there.
Kelly said the home was a total loss and the cause of the blaze is still unknown. No one was injured.
