LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) -Another house on Brewer Lane in Lowndes County has caught on fire Tuesday morning. It's the second house fire in less than three days on the street. "I want somewhere to stay, I don't know where I'm going to stay tonight, that's what bothers me, I have no clothes, I ain't got nothing, all I got is what I got on my body," said Owner Dennis Joyce.

 Dennis Joyce's walk down the street Tuesday morning to help a neighbor ended with him running back to see his house up in flames. "Went down the street to help a neighbor, she asked me yesterday if I would help hang her ceiling fan up...she said, I smell smoke, smells like your house is on fire, so I ran up the street and that's when I've seen JD in a white truck trying to put it out," added Dennis Joyce.

 It's the second fire in less than three days on Brewer Lane, Lowndes County Firefighters got the call this morning. The fire is still under investigation. "The house was unoccupied at the time, they could see fire under the door and it appears it started in the kitchen area and we had a fire fighter that was close by and he went and got a truck so we had a truck here in about 21 minutes," said Sammy Fondern, Lowndes County Fire Coordinator.

The task as hand now for Sheriff's and Investigators is to find out whether the fire that broke out Sunday morning on the same street had any connection. Lowndes County Firefighters has had an investigator on the seen looks for clues on what might have started the fire.
