    Mount Carmel Church!!!

    Does anyone go there now?? It's so sad to see how horrible that church looks on the outside. I guess they don't plan to get it repaired.. It was such a beautiful church back in the day. I'm sure Dr. Barnes is rolling over in he's grave knowing what happened to his church.

    It's time the city do something. They've closed the road on the east side of the church due to the danger of structure stability. Just burn it already!!!

    This was probably the plan all along.... Just let the building rot away until it becomes dangerous, then let the tax payers of Hattiesburg foot the bill for the demolition.

    The city will have to start a legal process with the owner of the land and property. (The one the rev ripped off by not paying the mortgage or insurance.) They will have so many days to comply and do what the city ask of them. It will be interesting to see what happens. Also to do a control training burn there are many hoops that have to be jumped through to do that. That building is really big, and houses are really close, so to burn something of that size will take a lot of planning. You can't just set stuff on fire when we are in dry months and when it's so close to residential homes. If someones house catches fire because of it there is a lot of legality the city has to take on. I can bet in that neighborhood very very few have insurance, so the city will have to walk a fine line when setting something that size on fire. It would be one thing if it "accidentally" caught fire, but if the city sets it on fire it could lead to huge issues. My bet is they will bulldoze it to be safe.

    If there is any asbestos in this building it is going to cost big bucks no matter what they do with it and I bet there is.

    If you never get it tested, then it doesn't have asbestos.

    After-hours demolition.

    Since I have been in the fire service for 39 3/4 years I don't like either of those options. If it does happen let us hope that Fire Command will go into immediate defensive mode and not allow any firefighters to enter the buildings. Protect exposures and let it burn.

    Re: Mount Carmel Church!!!

    Just to be clear, what I meant by "after-hours demolition" was just that - remove the offending material(s) after the City officials have gone home for the day (or weekend).

    Unfortunately there are a lot of old wooden homes in this area. You could quickly catch a whole neighborhood on fire when setting fire to something of that size. The last thing we need in this area is more devastation and homeless people.

    So, now they're closing Main St. because the building is unstable. TEAR IT THE HELL DOWN PEOPLE!!! Stop inconveniencing downtown by detouring everyone through the hood. Should've bent demolished a long time ago!

    Re: Mount Carmel Church!!!

    I hate how the city has Main Street blocked off. Hope they will soon do something about what once was a Beautiful Church.


    I blame the Ole Rev. for what has happened there. i know it was the bad weather but, if he had now stolen church and insurance funds
    and had be a REAL Pastor to that church. Im sure he would have done that right thing and got busy fixing that church back up.
    I saw in the paper the other day he is still trying to get out of jail but, the Judge said NO. Thank goodness.
