D'IBERVILLE -- A person was injured in a residential fire Monday morning in the Forrest Cove subdivision.
Firefighters responded about 4:06 a.m. to a structure fire on Ginger Drive and saw flames shooting out of a bedroom window. The fire quickly spread into the attic space, Deputy Chief Danny Miller said in a press release.
Firefighters extinguished the flames within 16 minutes of the first arriving unit, Miller said.
A family of eight was in the home, and an adult was awoken by the fire and alerted the others to evacuate.
Never miss a local story.
That adult was taken to an area hospital after suffering burns to the head and hands, Miller said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
