WATCH: Nicholson Volunteer Fire Department station in flames
PEARL RIVER COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX) - Late Monday night, a fire blazed through the Nicholson Volunteer Fire Department’s station house.
This video, sent in by a viewer, shows the interior of station #2, located at Jackson Landing Road and Huey Stockstill Road, engulfed in flames.
While the fire appears dangerous, the Pearl River County EMA director says that no one was hurt. However, the building was severely damaged. Two fire engines and a brush truck, along with other firefighting equipment, also sustained damage during the fire, according to Pearl River County EMA director Shawn Wise. This may make firefighting in Nicholson a bit more difficult until the equipment can be replaced.
The fire was quickly extinguished after five nearby fire departments responded to the scene.
We still aren’t sure of what sparked a fire inside a firehouse. Please check back for updates.
