The Vicksburg Fire Department has released information about a residential fire that occurred in the 100 block of Belva Drive on Wednesday night.

Units were immediately dispatched after a 911 call at 9:26 p.m. Wednesday. According to Fire Chief Craig Danczyk, all occupants were able to evacuate the home safely. The fire spread through the attic of the home, causing significant damage to the structure.
