OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Investigators are looking into what caused a fire at a funeral home Wednesday morning in Ocean Springs. Firefighters were called to Southern Mississippi Funeral Services on Government Street around 8:45 a.m.
Mark Dunston, from the Ocean Springs Police Department, said it took about 15 to 20 minutes to put the fire out, but some hot spots remained. Dunston said it appears the fire started in the back of the funeral home, but he declined to comment when asked if there were any bodies in the building.
Our WLOX News crew did see stretchers being brought to the back of the building.
