A woman is headed to Huntsville Hospital for smoke inhalation after a house fire on Joy Circle on Friday morning.

Huntsville Fire and Rescue say the fire started in the kitchen just before 8 AM. Four fire trucks were accompanied by emergency management vehicles as they responded to the scene. 

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the blaze that leaves four adults and three children now without a home.

Fire officials say the house is not livable after the fire damaged multiple rooms and they were forced to cut the power and gas.

The American Red Cross is working with the family to help them find a place to stay.
