Hattiesburg firefighters battle all-day blaze

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Units from every house in the Hattiesburg Fire Department have been battling a blaze since 10 a.m. Tuesday.

A debris field covered in rubbish from the city including trees and brush was reported to be on fire by residents early Tuesday, and first responders arrived soon after. The field is located near Faulkner Road near the Leaf River in Hattiesburg at the location of the old city dump.

The fire department units soon exhausted water supplies and have been shuttling water from fire hydrants on James Street as the river is too far away and no water lines are nearby.

Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
