Fire in USA on November 17 2017 05:29 AM (UTC).
A second massive fire in Alcorn County in four days has destroyed a local business. The 12:30 p.m. blaze at 35 Alcorn County Road 324 just west of Glen provided a potential dangerous situation due to possible chemical explosions, but 11 fire units representing seven departments were able to contain major developments. The blaze destroyed the large Palmer-Handrail Custom Millwork building, according to Alcorn County Assistant Emergency Management Director Jackie Pharr. "It's a total loss," said Pharr at the scene. "We are just trying to contain it due to lots of chemicals in there." Destroyed were a large work area and an upstairs office space. "It's a big one," said Pharr, as he directed water tanker after tanker to battle to blaze.
