Meridian, Mississippi A family is without a place to call home after flames and smoke destroyed their home.

Firefighters responded to a home on 18th Street in Meridian just after 7 p.m. on Saturday. No one was inside at the time of the fire.

The family was in the process of returning home from Righteous Oaks Recovery Center when they received word of the fire. By the time family members arrived, the fire was raging.

"We put on our flashers to get here as fast as we could," Gwendolyn Hicks recalls. "It's just crazy to know that it's gone."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
