A house fire around 3:00 a.m. Saturday in Meridian virtually destroyed the structure and its contents.

The fire happened at 2415 Highway 45 north. It's being blamed on a faulty space heater in the living room.

The occupant, Moody Phillips, had no renter's insurance. Phillips was able to escape with his two grandsons, who were asleep in the home.

"I just thank the Lord I got out safe and am living," said resident Moody Phillips.
