Two people escaped from a home in Opp during a house fire Saturday morning.

Opp Fire Chief Cory Spurlin said that Opp Fire units were dispatched at 2:08 a.m., Sun., Dec. 2, to a structure fire at 104 Graves Ave.

Spurlin said that Engine 7 arrived on scene and reported fire and heavy smoke showing.

Spurlin said the home’s occupants were evaluated by Haynes EMS paramedics, and no injuries were reported.

OPD also responded, he said.

Babbie Volunteer Fire Department covered Opp during the incident.

Spurlin said firefighters fought the fire for more than two hours, with the last unit clearing the scene at 4:20 a.m.

“The cause of the fire is listed as undetermined,” he said. “The insurance company is sending someone tomorrow to look at the home, but it’s nothing suspicious. It was a total loss.”

The names of the individuals are not being released at this time.
