Sandersville mobile home fire under investigation
SANDERSVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - The Jones County Sheriff’s Department is assisting the State Fire Marshal’s Office with the investigation of a mobile home fire in Sandersville.
The fire happened on Sunday at approximately 6 p.m. An adult male resident reportedly suffered serious injuries.
“The main brunt of the fire was in the rear on the porch, and we got water on the fire pretty quickly as well as other responding units showed up with tankers and manpower to assist us,” said Sandersville Volunteer Fire Chief Austin Reeves. “These mobile homes can go from a little flame to the whole thing gone within minutes. It’s important to get here, get water on the fire and get it knocked down as quickly as possible.”
Reeves credits the assisting agencies for responding quickly. They were on the scene less than five minutes after the call came in.
JCSD Sgt. JD Carter, who serves as the county fire investigator, has been assisting at the scene along with other JCSD investigators who scanned the fire scene with the JCSD FARO digital scanning device.
The investigation is continuing with fire scene analysis and interviews.
