QUITMAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Firefighters were called to the scene of a fully involved structure fire in Quitman Sunday.

The home was engulfed in flames when the fire department showed up at the home in the 2400 block of Highway 18 East around 9:30 Sunday morning.

Fire investigator Shane Harper says the home is a total loss. He says the homeowners were at church when a passerby saw and reported the fire.

Four fire departments were dispatched. Harper says there is no evidence that would rule this a suspicious fire.

The couple who lived in the home is staying with relatives.
