WJTV News Channel 12 - Jackson Firefighters Battle Huge Blaze at Downtown Building

Jackson Firefighters Battle Huge Blaze at Downtown Building

Posted: Updated:

We are covering breaking news in downtown Jackson at this hour. A massive fire has engulfed a building and has fire crews on the scene working to extinguish the flames. It is happening along South Jefferson Street. We are told it is the city of Jackson's Care Maintenance building. Fire crews and other emergency personnel are blocking streets in that area. However, we have been given no indication from police on the scene that detours are in place. If you, or someone you know, is in the area, they may want to consider an alternate route as they head home this evening. So far, no injuries are being reported and at this point, there is no word as to what may have sparked the fire. The investigation is ongoing. WJTV does have a crew on the scene and we are working to bring you much more information as it comes into the WJTV newsroom. You can also watch for a live report beginning on WJTV News Channel 12 @ 5:00 and WJTV News Channel 12 @ 6:00. And as always, be sure to look for continuous news updates online at the WJTV Facebook page, the WJTV Twitter page, and, right here on wjtv.com.
