Jones County--Throughout the day Saturday, various woods fires had firefighters across the county busy, then, shortly after 2:00 p.m. a structure fire was reported at 46 Armissie Road in Moselle.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a double wide mobile home fully engulfed in flames.

The mobile home sustained catastrophic damage during the incident.

Two vehicles parked nearby, as well as two power poles, sustained damage as well. Firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to the two structures nearby.

Owner Raymond Gaines stated the home was unoccupied at the time of the fire and was being remodeled. He and a neighbor had been burning a small pile of debris near the mobile home a few hours before smoke was noticed coming from the roof of the home.

Moselle, Southwest Jones, and South Jones volunteer fire departments responded to the incident.

No injuries were reported.

The Jones County Fire Council reminds residents to use extreme caution when burning during this time of dry, windy conditions.
