BURGAW, NC (WECT) - Firefighters with the Burgaw Fire Department were called around 1 a.m. Saturday to respond to a house fire on Piney Woods Road.

Flames were shooting out of the home up to 50 feet when they arrived on scene.

According to officials, people were inside the home when the fire started, but they were able to safely escape with no injuries.

Officials believe the fire broke out somewhere between the living room and garage, but Deputy Fire Marshal Tommy Batson said the damage is so bad a cause has yet to be determined.

The home is considered a total loss.
