Firefighters are at the scene of a large house fire in Sandy Springs that sent one person to the hospital.

It happened at a home on Windship Place on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Sandy Springs Fire Marshal Jeff Scarborough, the 4,000-square-foot home was completely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Scarborough also said one person was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

While the cause of the fire was unknown, it didn't appear to be arson and most likely started in the basement, according to Scarborough.

Firefighters were expected to stay at the home into Tuesday evening to make sure the fire didn't reignite.
