Moselle brush fire threatens homes

By Jeff Daley

Moselle, Ms (WDAM) - An early afternoon brush fire burned about five acres of land and threatened homes in Moselle Tuesday.

The fire was reported at around 12:30 on Ben Thompson Road near J.H. Smith Road.

Volunteer firefighters from Moselle and Ovett responded and were able to keep the fire from reaching the structures.

In at least one case the fire had reached the foundation of the home before it was extinguished.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
