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.

Culkin Engines 204 and 209 responded to the scene.

Vicksburg firefighters respond to unattended blaze

Published

on

Vicksburg firefighters were dispatched to 2560 Warrenton Road Monday morning for a structure fire.

This was the scene of a fire several weeks ago. Someone had started a fire in the debris from the original structure. Passersby saw the flames and were concerned that a possibly occupied camper on the property was in danger.

Ladder 15 responded to the scene and quickly extinguished the blaze. Vicksburg Fire Department Investigator Nathaniel Williams also responded to the scene.

Within Vicksburg city limits it is illegal to burn debris without contacting the fire department for permission. To do so, a readily available water source must be available in case the fire begins to spread.

Contact the Vicksburg Fire Department at 601-636-1603 to obtain a burn permit.

This incident is under investigation.
