Fire destroys Checker Hall of
A 2 p.m. blaze gutted Chateau Walker and
the International Checker Hall of Fame on Lynn Ray Road. Over 60
firefighters from Petal, Hattiesburg, and Macedonia worked together to
battle the blaze that produced a thick black cloud of smoke which could
be seen more than 3 miles away.
The Hall of Fame had been home to many
international checkers tournaments. But, in 2006, owner Charles
Walker pleaded guilty to money-laundering charges.
