Wildfire Reignites Near Menge Avenue

A weekend wildfire reignited Tuesday morning just east of Menge Avenue and south of Interstate 10.

Plumes of smoke hovered over the interstate Tuesday afternoon, as firefighters fought to keep homes and structures in the Stablewood Subvision safe. The interstate was not shut down, but the heavy winds did have fire fighters working hard to keep the fire contained.

"We've had a few close calls today with some houses, but nothing that is life-threatening, and no structures have been burned," Harrison Co. Fire Marshal George Mixon said.

Fire officials warn that a burn ban is in effect for all the counties in the WLOX viewing area.
