HARRISON COUNTY -- A fire that started on private property on Landon Road on Friday damaged about 5 acres of land, officials said.
Harrison County Fire Services Chief Pat Sullivan said the fire started about 4 p.m. and was contained within two hours. The land, just east of Canal Road, had once been a storage yard, he said. The property contained old equipment, scrap vehicles and tires.
"Several vehicles burned, and some tires burned. It was a bunch of different things that burned," Sullivan said.
No homes were affected by the fire, which Sullivan said is under investigation.

Sullivan said the Gulfport Fire Department and Mississippi State Forestry Commission also helped extinguish the blaze.
