PLANTERSVILLE – A brush fire was called in on County Road 1009 to the Plantersville Fire Department.
But it turned out a house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.
Officials said a garbage fire was burning out back, and a child was tossing sticks into the fire when the child threw a can of something in the fire, causing an explosion.
The fire started around 1:15 p.m. and firefighters were still fighting it as of 2:20 p.m.
The house is a total loss.
One person was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center for respiratory distress caused by smoke inhalation.
