Fire devastates in downtown Vicksburg

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

For all the students and teachers on spring break, your last day off should be beautiful weather-wise. We're starting off at 52 degrees and meteorologist Paul Williams will fill-in-the-blanks for the rest of the day and tomorrow's St. Paddy's Day Parade in his First Alert Forecast. 

Speaking of the parade, Jewell Hillery will be live this morning with a St. Patrick's Day preview. She'll give us a sneak-peak at one of the parade floats in the A.M. Report.

Also, an 18-wheeler ended up sideways, spilling its load overnight on Interstate 55 near Brookhaven. With clean-up still going on we'll let you know how long delays will continue.

Plus, a fire rips through a building in downtown Vicksburg, totally destroying a restaurant and apartments. We'll bring you the latest on what investigators believe sparked the blaze, at the top of the hour.

And as always on a Friday, Julie Levanway stops-by to whip us up something Fresh From the Flame.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, flip over to Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!
