WOOLMARKET, MS (WLOX) - What was originally dispatched as a small grass fire in Woolmarket turned out to be a waterslide engulfed in flames.
According to Battalion Chief Tony Murphy, the fire began in the grass and caught on to the deconstructed fiberglass slide.
Firefighters arrived at the scene around 1:40 p.m. and finished at around 3:30 pm.
The water slide was formerly used at the old Slippery Sam's location on West Beach in Biloxi, a fixture on the beachfront for decades.
The pieces were stored on private property.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
