A fire broke out in a home at 2521 Drummond St. in Vicksburg around 4:40 p.m. Sunday.

A single occupant was in the home when the fire began and was rescued by Vicksburg Police. That person is unhurt. No origin of the fire is known at the time.

One firefighter is being treated for heat exhaustion.

Multiple Vicksburg Fire Department crews are on the scene battling the blaze in the two-story wood-frame house, including engines 6, 7 and 8, Ladder 3 and Platform 1 along with Rescue, Fire Medic 40, Battalion 1, and FD-1 and 3.

According to tax records, the property is owned by Franklin D. and Janice A. Berry.

Expect firefighters to be on scene for several hours.

Please avoid the area and give first responders the room they need to do their jobs.
