Explosion Rocks Home In Byhalia, Mississippi

BYHALIA, Miss. (localmemphis.com) - A Byhalia, Mississippi woman has lost her home in an explosion. It happened around 1:30 p.m. Friday afternoon on Cayce Road in Marshall County.


 

A fire investigator with the Marshall County Sheriff's Department tells Local 24 no one was inside the house at the time of the explosion. No one was injured.

The woman who live alone at the house was inside a separate building on the property when she heard a loud noise. At first, she says she thought it was the construction business nearby, until she heard the noise a second time. That’s when she looked outside, saw smoke and the windows to her home were blown out.

The cause is still under investigation. The fire investigator says it appeared the fire was mostly coming from the second floor.

“She's doing okay. She's pretty upset losing everything that she have, was in the home. But I told her it's just a blessing she wasn't in there,” says Sgt. Tracy Jeffries with the Marshall County Sheriff's Department.

It took five fire departments close to an hour to put the fire out. We’re told the state fire marshal will work with local fire investigators to determine what caused the explosion.
