An elderly couple is safe after escaping the flames when a home caught fire today in Harrison County.
Gulfport fire crews rushed to a burning house on Reservation Drive inside a subdivision off Three Rivers Road in Harrison County. As firefighters worked to extinguish the flames, AMR stood by in case anyone needed to be taken to a hospital.
The homeowners and other family members were trying to save some of their personal belongings that appeared to be damaged from the flames.
Neighbors tell News 25 they were concerned after seeing smoke rise from the house next door. Neighbor Mona Harris said, “They all got out and of course, we all have insurance, but you lose a lot of personal stuff. I feel sorry for the family, but I’m so glad no one was hurt or anything.”
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Family members of the elderly couple thank the Gulfport Fire Department for their quick response.
