RANKIN COUNTY — Fire has destroyed a Rankin County archery business due to lack of water.

WLBT-TV reports that the nearest hydrant was blocks away from Emerson’s Outdoors, so firefighters had to truck in water. The building was about 10 miles north of Brandon, east of the Ross Barnett Reservoir.

Owner Jerry Emerson said that the blaze started yesterday from embers of a trash pile he was burning.

He said there’s no way to fix the building, and he would have to start over.
