ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - Jones County authorities are investigating a fire that gutted an old radio station in Ellisville early this morning. A 2 a.m. blaze destroyed the old location of WBSJ on Highway 29.

Calhoun Fire Department officials say the wooden building had been abandoned for years and did not have electricity. Firefighters from several departments battled the blaze for about an hour.

Some had to return a few hours later when the fire reignited.

The cause has not been determined.
