Flames spread through Gautier fishing camp overnight

GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) - Flames damaged several buildings at a fishing camp in Gautier Monday night.

We first learned of the fire at the Hercules Fishing Club shortly before 11 p.m. Flames could be scene shooting from several buildings.

"It sounded like an explosion or something," a witness at the scene told WLOX News Now. "I came outside and saw the flames. It was burning pretty good when I got out here. It was like an inferno going."

Deputy Fire Chief Derrick McCoy said the fire heavily damaged two homes and destroyed another.

Firefighters are still working this morning to put out hot spots. McCoy reports the homes are made out of hard pine wood and that's causing troubles for the firemen to put out the fire completely.

McCoy said investigators will be at the scene today trying to determine the cause. We'll keep you updated on the investigation.
