Explosion Happens in Yalobusha County


TILLATOBA, Miss.–The explosion that destroyed a house and killed two people Monday evening in Yalobusha County was so strong and loud that it knocked objects off of walls in nearby homes.

County Coroner Ronnie Stark was still not ready to release the names of the victims Tuesday evening.
The explosion happened on County Rd. 272, which is near Tillatoba. Stark told reporters three people were inside the house when the explosion happened and only one made it out.
The bodies of the deceased have been taken to the Mississippi State Crime lab for autopsies.
The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the fire to find the cause
