A Lafferty Pike home was completely destroyed by fire early Saturday morning.
Anthony Wright, who lives alone, was sleeping when a loud crashing noise awakened him.
“It was pitch black with smoke,” Wright said.
Wright was able to get out of the home, however all of his, his children’s and grandchildren’s belongings were destroyed.
Because the fire spread so rapidly, Chief Charles Carson of the Harrison County Volunteer department said the state fire marshal was called in to investigate.
