EASTABUCHIE, MS (WDAM) -

One of the oldest homes in Jones County has been destroyed by fire. A house at 30 Ogburn Circle went up in flames Tuesday night. 

A family of three lived there but no one was home when it started.

A volunteer firefighter who was driving by noticed the fire and called authorities.

Investigators said the family was renting the home and was in the process of moving.

The exact age of the house isn't known, but investigators said it dated back to the 1800's.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
