Fire has ravaged a home on the 300 block of Skyview Lane, where Vicksburg Fire Department is working to contain the flames. Low water pressure in the area is hampering firefighting efforts.

Fire Engine 6 was dispatched at 10:04 a.m. due to the heavy smoke that was visible from several blocks away. Officials report that the home was already 60% engulfed when they arrived on the scene. Thankfully, no one was in the home and there are no injuries. It is unclear at this time how the fire started.

Responding units include Engines 2 and 6, Ladder 3, Platform One, Rescue, Fire Medic 50, Battalion Chief Tim Love, Deputy Chief Trey Martin and Chief Craig Danczyk.

A fire in the Openwood Plantation subdivision was quickly extinguished by Warren County firefighters Tuesday afternoon.

The fire was located at a wooden fence at 102 Plantation Drive, and a passerby alerted firefighters to the scene shortly after 4 p.m. The adjacent homeowner was burning leaves and the fire spread catching the fence on fire, according to Warren County Fire Coordinator Jerry Briggs. A classic pickup parked near the fence was not damaged and no one was injured.
