A Jones County family loses everything in a house fire

A Jones County family is grieving after losing everything they own, including several animals, in an early morning house fire.

Fire authorities said a home on the corner of McAndrews Road and Maxey Road went up in flames around 8:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Several volunteer fire units battled the blaze for over two hours but were unable to save the family's two dogs and bird that were trapped inside.

Fire officials said they will not know the cause of the fire until later in the week.

However, a benefit account has been set up at Community Bank in Laurel. Any money donations will need to be made out to: Greg Bounds to benefit The Bynum family.
