An Opelousas man is without a home after a fire this afternoon destroyed it.
Firefighters responded to the residence on Brittany Street around 1:39 P. M. The homeowner's son, David Jones, says all of the residents escaped, but the home is a total loss. Jones adds that he and his family were celebrating his mother's 76th birthday.
The homeowner and his wife were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Fire officials are still working to determine what sparked the fire.
