VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Vicksburg apartment complex is still smoldering, after several units caught fire and burned for several hours. 

Thirty-seven units at Whispering Pines were condemned just last week and the owner had 30 days to fix them.

Crews were called to the complex just after 12:30 Friday. Officials say fire spread through the crawl spaces and hit several different units within the building.

They believe the fire started as a result of an electrical issue. Inadequate water pressure also hindered the firefighters' efforts to fight the blaze.
