Suspicious fire destroys Hattiesburg home

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A suspicious fire destroyed a Hattiesburg home Sunday afternoon.

The fire was reported at about 1:30 p.m. at a home in the 100 block of West 5th Street.

When firefighters arrived on the scene the home was engulfed in flames and the fire was threatening two adjacent homes. Their first priority upon arrival was to keep the fire contained to the one home. The fire took about 45 minutes to get under control.

The home was not occupied at the time of the fire.

Though having to battle the heat while fighting the fire, no injuries were reported to the firefighters.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but a Hattiesburg Fire Department spokesperson says it is believed to be suspicious in nature.
