D'Iberville fire under control

An early-morning fire that destroyed Grimes Cabinets and Tops near Promenade Parkway is under control and a traffic alert for the area has been lifted.

Fire Chief Gerald Smith says the blaze at the long-time business on Old Highway 67 was reported about 5 a.m., and the fire was fully involved when firefighters arrived.

The business had not opened for the day and no injuries were reported.

Smith said the blaze began inside the building. The fire was under control before 10 a.m.

"We're working on hot spots now," he said.

The shop was in the 11000 block of Old Highway 67. Earlier this morning, the Mississippi Department of Transportation advised motorists that both lanes of the highway were closed from West Gay Road to Promenade Parkway.

The road is now clear for travel.
