Family escapes trailer fire

EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A trailer home in Edwards is burned up after an early morning fire.

The home located at 1157 Jones Road is a complete loss. The fire was out when our crew arrived on the scene, but clusters of smoke could still be seen around parts of the trailer.

The blaze was so destructive that it burned holes throughout the trailer and caused much of the roof to cave in.

Neighbors say they woke up to the fire.

"My mom she woke up this morning, she heard a popping noise and saw bright lights outside. Then she looked out the window and saw that the house across the street was on fire and then she came and got me and I looked, it was up in flames," said Edwards resident Nubian Barnes.

The family that lived in the trailer escaped safely. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
