Before the slew of fires that plagued the county Friday, two Greenwood men lost their home in a blaze the night before.

Just after 11 p.m. Thursday, Greenwood-Slidell, Decatur and Alvord fire departments responded to a single-story brick house fire on County Road 2644.

One of the home’s occupants awoke to the sound of smoke alarms. He ran down a smoke-filled hallway and saw flames shooting from under the back door by the carport.

He asked to not be named.

The home’s second occupant was not at home at the time.

The fire rekindled shortly after 7 Friday morning, and Greenwood-Slidell, Decatur and Alvord departments responded again.
