FORT MILL, S.C. -- A large house fire in Fort Mill caused a partial roof collapse on Thursday afternoon.

Just after 3 p.m. fire crews responded to a home in the 800 block of Hickory Stick Drive.

Officials confirm that although there was a partial roof collapse, no one in the home was injured, but did say three children were able to escape the home.

Fire officials say the blaze began in the kitchen-area.

Three fire departments responded: Flint Hill, Ft. Mill and Riverview.

The value of the damages is nearly $350,000.

Now, neighbors have stepped-up to make sure this family has the necessities they need. Everyone's pitching in--offering up their homes, food, clothing and toiletries to the displaced family.

One neighbor told NBC Charlotte that the woman of the now burned-down house is originally from Newtown, CT, and knew many of those affected in last weel's tragedy.
