GLADE, MS (WDAM) - An early morning fire in the Glade Community destroyed a mobile home.

The fire occurred at around 2:00 a.m. at a home owned by Dwayne Donald on Blondie Road.

Volunteer fire and rescue units from Glade, M&M, and Powers, arrived to find flames pouring out of the sides and the roof collapsed on one side of the home.

Firefighters were able to knock the flames down quickly, but not before the home was a total loss.

The homeowner advised that the  home was unoccupied and under renovation at the time of the fire. He requested that an investigator be brought in to determine the cause. It is the second time Donald has lost his home to fire.

There were no emergency personnel hurt fighting the fire.

A fire investigator from the Jones County Sheriff's Department has been called in to help determine the cause.
