Forrest County home a total loss after fire

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A single-family home in Forrest County appears to be a total loss after catching fire Tuesday afternoon.

Four volunteer fire departments responded to the blaze on JB Horn Road after a neighbor called 911 around 1:40 p.m.

We spoke with that neighbor, who said they heard a loud boom and walked outside to find the rear of the neighboring home in flames.

Fire officials tell us no one was home when the fire ignited, and the cause is being investigated.

The Brooklyn, Dixie, McLaurin and Carnes volunteer fire departments all responded to the call.
