HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Several concerned citizens in Hancock County have called the WLOX newsroom about smoke flowing through the air in the Bayside Park community.

We have learned the smoke is coming from a controlled burn near the intersection of Leake St. and W. Forrest St. Authorities tell us they are aware of the burn.

A WLOX News Now reporter on the scene tells us a property owner is burning debris to clear a lot.

A burn ban was issued for Bay St. Louis and Waveland a week ago, but this burn is legal because it is outside the city limits. There is no burn ban in effect for Hancock County.
