VIDEO: Two people are dead after an early morning house fire.A fire broke out at a home on Edd Raines Road in Sugar Tree. The Fire Coordinator for Decatur County, David Whitaker, says it happened early Saturday morning. “We arrived on the scene at pre-dawn,” Whitaker said. “It was still dark, and we found a residential structure fully engulfed.” Whitaker says it took an hour to put out the blaze. “We probably had over 50 firefighters and rescue personnel on that scene for about four hours,” Whitaker said. “With the recovery effort and with the structure being so unstable, [we] had to locate and remove those victims.”
