FLORA, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Flames burned throughout much of Monday night destroying a Madison County warehouse, near Kearney Park, north of Flora.

Tuesday, there were hot spots at this fire and smoke was still rising.

The property owner says this is the second suspicious fire at this warehouse in two years,

Product Services owner Patrick Dickerson says this building stored wood used for the production of oil gator -- a bioremediated product that absorbs hydrocarbons like oil and diesel spills.

It is made of cottonseed lint.

Dickerson said the warehouse had been used for ten years, and in 2016, a fire started in the middle of the summer when the building was not being used.

That building is not insured.

The Madison County Fire Coordinator said 40,000 gallons of water were used on the fire.

“Right now, we have a huge building that’s full of cotton seed that he wants to protect, but all we can do is buy him time to get it loaded and transferred somewhere else because we’re not gonna be able to put this thing out," said "We’ll contain the fire, slowing it down so they can eventually move that cottonseed, but that’s the only way we’re gonna save that cottonseed -- if he relocates it.”

The property owner says he will be taking another financial loss with this suspicious fire.
