LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Several Lamar County residents are lucky to be alive after an early morning house fire. With the help of neighbors, the occupants were able to escape the fire at 59 Morrell Circle in the Trace Subdivision.

Lamar County Volunteer firefighters responded to the fully-engulfed house fire just after midnight to find flames already venting through the second story.

Fire officials called for additional man power, along with the counties ladder truck for aerial support.

Volunteers surrounded the structure and continued adding water to keep it from spreading to other structures. The fire was under control just before 2 a.m. and the cause of the fire has not been determined.

No one was injured in the fire that completely destroyed the structure.
