Fire leaves family of three homeless in Covington County

COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A family of three is homeless after a fire destroyed their house Monday morning.

Fire departments from across southern Covington county responded to a 911 call around 11:20 a.m. on Booth Road near Seminary.

Authorities said that neighbors were driving by the home when they noticed flames coming out of the roof of the house.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control but not before the house suffered major smoke and fire gutted the interior.

The fire was believed to have started in one of the back bedrooms. No one was home at the time and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
