House fire in Saucier
Two Saucier residents had a scary wake-up call early this morning as flames engulfed their home.
It happened at a house on East Adams Road around 4:30 a.m. and when a News 25 reporter arrived on the fiery scene around 6:30 a.m. multiple fire crews were still working to extinguish the flames.
Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan told News 25 two people sustained burns and were taken to the hospital for treatment and shortly after the female was transferred to USA Medical Center burn unit in serious condition.
The Harrison County Fire Department as well as the Mississippi Fire Marshal’s Office are currently working to investigate the cause of the fire. Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said, “I am going to say that they did get lucky because the interview that I did with the male, he said that he woke up and the house was already on fire, that there was so much fire that they had to go through fire and through the heat and the smoke and anytime that happens that means that they did not have early warning. This is a prime example of smoke detectors giving early warning, waking you up in the middle of the night and saying ‘get out, get out, get out.’”
Firefighters told News 25 the home was a total loss.
