The Clarion-Ledger newspaper and CNN cited Leflore County emergency management director Fred Randle as confirming the death toll of 16.

Photos posted on its website showed plumes of black smoke billowing from a green agricultural field.

"Please join Deborah and me in praying for those hurting after this tragedy. Our men and women in uniform risk themselves everyday to secure our freedom," Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant said in a statement on Facebook.
