Lowndes County firefighters are investigating a blaze that took a man's home and his barn.
Around 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon, Billy Bradley's home and his barn on Kay Circle went up in flames. No one was home at the time. Neighbors say it took fire crews about two hours to put out the flames.
Neighbor Hope Porter says Bradley was a skilled woodworker and had multiple projects he was working on inside his barn.
"The window caught fire and then there was fire everywhere. The shed, he had projects in there, they had all burnt up. It was just so sad," said neighbor, Hope Porter.
Lowndes County fire officials say it will be next week before they report the cause of the fire.
