Video: Fire Destroys Lowndes Home

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A Lowndes County family loses everything in a house fire.

The home of Eddie Thomas at 690 Mount Airy Church Road off Highway 45 South was almost a total loss by the time District 5 volunteer firefighters could get to the residence.

A neighbor heard an explosion at about noon and looked out to see flames pouring from the home. Two cars were destroyed. A third car was saved.

No one was at home at the time and no one was injured. Firefighters continue to investigate the cause.

Neighbors said it was the second fire the family has had in the last two years.
