House fire under investigation
RIDGELAND — The state Fire Marshal is investigating a weekend house fire here.
The fire destroyed a townhome on Boardwalk Boulevard Saturday evening.
RFD received a call reporting the fire at 583 Boardwalk Boulevard on Saturday, Oct. 7, at 6:01 p.m.
“They were able to knock down the fire pretty quickly,” said Fire Chief Matt Bailey. “After that, they were probably on the scene another two or three hours making sure the fire did not rekindle.”
Bailey said that no one is believed to have been home at the time of the blaze and no injuries have been reported. The adjoining units were not damaged.
Bailey said the call came from a neighbor.
“This is an ongoing investigation,” he said.
The investigation has been turned over to the insurance agency and the State Fire Marshall’s Office, Bailey said.
