Flowood wildfire contained

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A wildfire that burned all weekend near the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Rankin County has been contained, according to officials with the Flowood Fire Department.

Fire crews successfully formed a fireline perimeter around the wildfire, which encompassed as-much-as 10 acres.  Areas within the perimeter are still burning, which means some smoke continues to loom from the blaze that ignited last Friday.

No structures are threatened and what sparked the fire is unknown.
