Fully involved house fire destroys home in Harrison County

A structure fire destroyed a Harrison County man’s home earlier this evening.

Just after 4 p.m. this afternoon, Harrison County Fire Services, along with Biloxi Fire and D’Iberville Fire Departments, responded to a fully involved structure fire on C.J. Dellie Road.

First units on the scene found a single wide trailer on fire as well as two campers, a car, and a couple of motorcycles.

No one was home at the time, besides two cats. It is unknown if the cats made it out.

Additionally, ammunition and fireworks inside the structures were going off. Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said, “That is not uncommon to find ammunition. In this particular structure we had ammunition going off. We even had fireworks going off. So, it’s something we’re aware of. It’s something that we’re trained to be aware of and to be safe around it.”

Neighbor Michael Gennaro said, “Well I heard some noise. So, I was walking back and forth from my house to my shed and it sounded like an explosion. So, when I looked on over, I seen the flames shooting up in the air. With this pandemic going on like it is, it’s tough to lose something, especially to a fire on top of everything else.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. However, Chief Sullivan did say the owner has lost everything.
