Chicot Memorial

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Thursday night fire in Vicksburg claimed the lives of two infants. 16-month old Mariah Dearman and 27-month-old Glen Williams were pronounced dead at the scene by Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey. Firefighters were called to the home on Johnson street shortly before 10:00 PM and found the house completely engulfed in flames. A burst gas pipe added to the conflagration which was so intense the house next door caught fire and burned as well. An unidentified man suffered burns to his hands and face trying to rescue the children and was hospitalized in Jackson. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
