I-10 reopens in Hancock County

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Interstate 10 has reopened in Hancock County. Earlier this afternoon, a portion of the road between mile marker nine and ten was closed because of fire.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol said the fire is now under control, but there's still smoke in the area, so traffic is moving slowly.

MDOT is working to put up lighted signs warning drivers to use caution because of the smoke.
