MANASSAS, Va. (WUSA) -- A Manassas family managed to escape the flames that engulfed their home in the Lake Jackson area early Wednesday morning.

Chief Curtis Brody, spokesman for the Prince William County Fire Department, says the fire was first reported just before 2:00 a.m. in the 10600 block of Tattersall Drive. 

Once firefighters arrived on scene they found the blaze had spread throughout the house. A 2nd alarm response was requested to the scene. Chief Brody says radiant heat from the intense blaze also spread the fire damage to a home next door.

According to Chief Brody, all residents were able to safely escape, with no injuries reported. Members of the Red Cross are assisting the displaced residents.

The flames have been brought under control and crews worked throughout the morning to douse hot spots.

The preliminary damage estimate is $330,000.00, officials said.

The fire is currently under investigation by the Fire Marshal's Office.
