HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Saucier Lizana Road is now open after flames, smoke, and zero visibility caused officials to close parts of the road Thursday. The closure lasted until the early morning hours on Friday.
Barricades were set up at West Wortham and Saucier Lizana, and also at Lennis Cuevas and Saucier Lizana.
At one point flames from a woods fire reached the edge of the road, creating thick smoke.
Only drivers who live in the area will be allowed access to the area.
