Holmes County Fire

A Holmes County man is homeless after fire destroyed his mobile home.

The fire started Wednesday afternoon at the home on Highway 177-A, just south of Highway 2 in northern Holmes County.

It took firefighters over an hour to put out the fire. By that time the mobile home was destroyed.

The state fire marshal's office says it appears a malfunctioning ceiling fan started the fire.

The man who lives there was not home at the time. No one was hurt.
