HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Fire crews were battling a fire deep in the woods in the Long Beach area Tuesday night. The "large acreage" fire is burning near Turner Road, north of 28th Street and south of I-10.

Crews with Harrison County Fire Services and the Mississippi Department of Forestry are working to contain the blaze.

Right now there is no danger to homes in the area, but Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said they are concerned about some smoke and embers blowing towards I-10 due to the windy conditions.
