MOSELLE, MS. (WDAM) - A late afternoon fire destroyed an automobile in South Jones County Tuesday.  The fire occurred at around 2:30 on Monroe Road in Moselle.

When firefighters from Southwest Jones arrived on the scene the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames.  It took them about 15 minutes to get the blaze under control.

The fire apparently was sparked by an acetylene torch being used to loosen a bolt on the manifold in the engine compartment.

Fortunately no one was injured in the fire.
