Inferno erupts at Yazoo landmark
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Bentonia volunteer firefighter Edward “Tra” Ferrell thought it was dark clouds rolling in when he first looked at the sky.
The he saw the flames from the Federal Compress fire in downtown Yazoo City. Considering that he was several miles away at Kentucky Fried Chicken on Jerry Clower Boulevard, the veteran fireman knew it wasn’t good.
“I saw a thick cloud of smoke,” he said. “I walked outside, and that is when I saw the flames.”
