People possibly trapped in house fire - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Mother, son escape massive house fire

(WMC-TV) - Crews feared people were trapped inside a massive house fire in Parkway Village Wednesday night, but a woman and her adult son made it out safely. 

But virtually everything they own was lost in the burning house at 4849 Luzon Cove.

One of the two survivors said it started with some sort of explosion.

"We were sitting down for dinner and heard an explosion, and I went to check it out and couldn't breathe, and I wanted my mama out, and luckily thank god, we got out," said victim Eric Brown. 

Fire investigators have not determine the official cause of the fire. The Red Cross will help the family.
