JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson family is homeless after an early morning fire destroyed most of their house.

The Jackson Fire Department says it happened around 2:30 Sunday morning in the 2900 block of Booker T. Washington Street off Ridgeway Street.

No word on what sparked the fire. There were no injuries.

The Red Cross is helping the family with clothing and a place to stay. This is the second blaze in two weeks on Booker T. Washington Street.

On January 6th we told you about a five-year-old boy who saved his family of ten from a roaring fire that destroyed their home.
