Fire has ravaged a home on the 300 block of Skyview Lane, where Vicksburg Fire Department is working to contain the flames. Low water pressure in the area is hampering firefighting efforts.

Fire Engine 6 was dispatched at 10:04 a.m. due to the heavy smoke that was visible from several blocks away. Officials report that the home was already 60% engulfed when they arrived on the scene. Thankfully, no one was in the home and there are no injuries. It is unclear at this time how the fire started.

Responding units include Engines 2 and 6, Ladder 3, Platform One, Rescue, Fire Medic 50, Battalion Chief Tim Love, Deputy Chief Trey Martin and Chief Craig Danczyk.
