The Vicksburg Fire Department was dispatched at 8:55 p.m. Thursday night to a 2-story residential structure fire at 1617 Monroe St.

Smoke was showing upon firefighters’ arrival and flames were coming from the attic space. The Vicksburg Convalescent Home is located next door but was not threatened.
