VANCLEAVE, MS (WLOX) -
A barn fire Tuesday landed 59-year-old Frankie Joe Maxey, of Vancleave behind bars, according to Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call around 4:30 p.m. about a fire at a barn and wooded area located at the 19000 block of Busby Road in Vancleave.

The barn was saved after Jackson County firefighters extinguished the fire. Byrd said there was only minimal damage to the property.
