JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Various firefighting agencies in Jackson County held a communications drill Thursday.

The exercise was unique because it was based on an actual 800 acre woods fire in June of 2011 that threatened homes and businesses in and around Sunplex Industrial Park. That's where the drill was held.

Local, state and federal firefighting agencies participated in the training exercise.
