Brush Fire on Glascock Circle in Gulfport
A large brush fire sweeps over four acres of land in Gulfport today.
The Gulfport Fire Department responded to Glascock Circle off of Seaway Road just west of Cowan-Lorraine Road around 3:30 this afternoon. A man working in the area saw the fire and called it in. No word yet on what caused it.
Authorities had it contained within an hour and no homes or businesses were in immediate danger.
Gulfport Fire Lieutenant Mark Hilley tells News 25 the area was on commercial land, a lot of it up for sale. Holden Earth Moving and Construction also owns some of the land near the fire.
Lt. Hilley tells News 25 it’s too early to tell if the fire was arson or not. A complete investigation will take place in the near future to determine just what caused the blaze.
