HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

All four victims in the Hancock County home fire were transported to out-of-state hospitals. Two adults and two children were inside the two-story house on Highway 43 in Hancock County when the fire ignited around 4 a.m. Thursday.

Hancock County EMA Director Brian Adam said the children were able to escape and suffered smoke inhalation. The two adults sustained injuries.

Officials said a volunteer firefighter happened to be passing the house, saw it burning and helped get the victims out of a window of the home.

According to Stasha Boudreaux, her daughter Brec Hines,19, and Hines' fiancé Justin Hayes, 18, were transported to a burn center in Augusta, GA. Hines is being treated for smoke inhalation.

"As far as we know right now, she didn't have any burns. Her air way was three quarters of the way blocked," Boudreaux said.

Hayes suffered burns to his leg and foot, Boudreaux said.

Boudreaux said, Hines' two children Mason Landrum, 2, and Matthew Jr.Landrum, 1, were transported to Oschners Hospital in New Orleans for treatment for smoke inhalation and minor burns.

Fire officials are investigating what caused the 4 a.m. blaze. We'll keep you updated as we continue to follow this story.
