Fire Destroys Apartment Building at the Landings Again


VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — For the third time since 2002, fire has destroyed an apartment building at The Landings near Vicksburg. No one was injured when Building No. 9 went up in flames shortly before 2:00 PM Monday afternoon. Firefighters from Warren County battled the blaze for hours with assistance from numerous local fire departments, including from the City of Vicksburg to no avail. The building was a total loss. The heat from the flames were so intense fireman had to work to protect a neighboring building as heat began warping and melting the siding. Even across the parking lot reports say radiant heat from the blaze damaged siding on two other buildings. Major fires occurred at the complex in 2002, and 2011 as well.
