Shortly after 1 p.m. Tuesday, the Vicksburg Fire Department responded to call from Peoples Drug Store at 1521 Washington St. Employees could smell what they thought was an electrical fire, but there were no signs of flames or smoke.

Firefighters spent about half an hour looking for the source of the smell, but could not locate a fire or fire hazard.

Later, shortly after 3 p.m., the fire department returned to extinguish the fire, which turned out to be inside a coke machine.

Vicksburg Daily News was on the scene.
