ROANOKE, Va (WDBJ7) Roanoke Fire-EMS says eight people are out of a home after a house fire in Roanoke. It happened around 11:20 a.m. on Sunday, in the 2000 block of Mountain View Terrace.The family narrowly escaped it thanks to parents who acted fast. Still no word on what caused this fire. But this family knows their quick action Sunday prevented this from being much worse.As crews hosed down hot spots for hours Sunday the Carter family watched from the end of the block, reflecting on how a morning of getting ready for church ended like this."I was in the kitchen making breakfast and we just kept smelling like burning paper, burning wood," Mother Amanda Carter said.A fire on the front porch was the smell. Dad opened the front door to a wall of flames."So naturally I slammed the door and I went around and got all the kids out and went upstairs I grabbed everybody to get everybody out of the house and we came out the side door and not even two minutes later after we got everyone out of the side door the house went up in flames," Dad Charles Carter said.Mom, dad and kids ages toddler to late teen all out safe because of that quick action. Early investigation shows the fire roared up the front wall of the house and straight to the attic, where some of the kids were."I want something to happen to me before it does one of my kids, all I was thinking was getting everyone out," Charles Carter said. "Once I got everyone out of the house, of course I turn on the water hose and tried to...but it was too late, it was already too far gone basically the buckets of water that I tried to throw on it the fire just laughed at it.""It was terrifying, she was in the living room. I'm glad we were home I'm glad we hadn't gone to church yet because I don't think the kids would have gotten out," Amanda Carter said. "We just screamed for all the teens to get out and all the teenagers they did, we all got through the side door and then within seconds, just the whole house was up, seconds like ten seconds, it happened so fast. I'm just glad we're all OK, the stuff is not a big deal."The house was closed off for now and investigators continue their work.The family has no renters insurance and says it appreciate any and all help."I'm standing here hurt because we lost everything, but I'd rather be standing here hurt from losing all our stuff then me losing a child or my spouse," Charles Carter said.Fire investigators had taped off the scene and left before sundown Sunday. The family that lives here was hoping to stay with other folks in the area.We hope to learn more details about what caused the fire Monday.
