A fire in Mingo Junction shut down State Route 151 for a good portion of Saturday evening.

The fire, which displaced a family of eight, required assistance from multiple fire departments. Officials believe that the fire started on the outside of the home.

While some family members were home at the time of the blaze they were able to escape without injury.

The process of putting out the blaze was slowed after a citizen ran over a water line. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
