RANKIN COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - Rankin County officials worked a trailer fire Wednesday morning at 418 Hickory Hill Place, in the Monterey community.

The Monterrey Fire Department handled the blaze, with assistance from the Florence Fire Department.

When firemen arrived on the scene, fire was shooting from under the trailer and the inside was fully engulfed in flames.

No one was home, but a small dog perished in the blaze. All four occupants were away, either at work or at school.

The trailer belongs to Deborah Bland.

"I had gone to work, left about 6:30 and everybody had left to go to school, and drop animals off at the vet" said Bland. "There was one dog left in the house, and they can't find him, and nothing was salvageable."

Firemen said the trailer was a total loss and everything in it was destroyed.
