Fire Damages Meridian Home

Meridian, Miss.
A Meridian man has lost his home in a fire Monday morning.

Firefighters were called to the scene of 6115 Old Poplar Springs Drive around 11 a.m. Officials found the home fully engulfed in flames.

No one was injured. The home owner said he has just left moments earlier.

"I just walked out the door. I went down to the store and a man came and told me my house was on fire," said Billy Moffitt. "That's all I know. Like I said, it must have been some naked wires up in there that set it afire like that. There wasn't nothing on, no heater or nothing. It just caught on fire."

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control quickly. Officials are investigating the exact cause of the blaze.
