JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Due to Thursday night's massive fire at the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum, regular operations, including Harvest Festival and Gingerbread Market, have been canceled for Friday and Saturday. Private events will move forward as planned.

The fire, which began just before 5:00 p.m., destroyed the Barnyard, the Veterinary Infirmary, and caused significant damage to the Museum's maintenance shop. All Ag Museum staff and large animals made it out of the buildings safely with only one minor injury reported. The cause of the destructive fire remains unknown at this time.

The Jackson Fire Department responded promptly and brought the fire under control saving multiple other historic buildings.
