A mobile home on Hwy 80 caught fire and burned early Sunday morning in Warren County.

At about ten minutes after 2 a.m., 911 dispatched Warren County firefighters to the location at 770 Hwy 80. The first unit on scene reported that the structure was 25% involved, with flames and smoke showing.

.

Numerous Warren County firefighters responded to the call in the middle of the night. Units from Bovina, Culkin, LeTourneau, and Fisher Ferry, including Wendell Blair and his wife, Amanda, were seen at the location. Blair was featured on the live report climbing a ladder and maneuvering the firehose into the flaming home.

The homeowner, Mark Stevens, was out of town but was made aware of the fire by a Vicksburg Daily News reader. The live report ended when Stevens phoned the Vicksburg Daily News to speak with his friend David Day. Stevens then spoke to Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy (and active Warren County firefighter) Daniel Thomas, WC-31, to give him pertinent information about the property. The home was insured, and Stevens is currently working with the authorities to determine the cause of the fire and assess the damage.
