NATCHEZ — A Natchez Police officer lost his home to a fire on Tuesday afternoon.

Natchez Police Chief Joseph Daughtry told the Mayor and Board of Aldermen Officer Dequatarrius Jackson and his fiancé and 3-year-old son had gone to his mother’s house during the storm and their home on Stampley Road in Fayette burned while they were away.

“They lost everything,” Daughtry said. “They are still in shock.”
