Once they arrived they discovered two trailers engulfed in flames. Harrison County Fire Marshal Pat Sullivan says both structures were so involved they weren’t able to enter, but eventually put out the flames.

Both trailers were destroyed, but officials don’t believe anyone was injured.

Harrison County Fire Marshal Pat Sullivan says he is thankful to the quick actions of the first responders. “We have mutual aid partners with fire departments on the Coast. We assist, in this case Long beach sent an engine and we sent several engines. Our unit arrived first but within a matter of minutes Long Beach was right there with us. The cooperation between the fire departments on the Coast is excellent.”

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
