M & M Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire at 9:25 this morning. A neighbor passing the residence activated 911 after passing the home and seeing heavy smoke and flames from the windows. Upon arrival, firefighters found the older model single wide mobile home fully involved with flames showing through each window and the roof compromised from the extensive blaze.
Next door neighbors reported hearing a loud boom and their power failing at the time the incident began. The rental home was vacant at the time of the incident, with the last tenants having moved out within the past week. No injuries were reported.
M & M was assisted by Glade, Rustin, and Powers volunteer fire departments. Jones County Sheriff's Office and Emserv Ambulance Service were also on scene.
