A brush pile which was burned last Thursday was re-ignited by high winds Sunday afternoon, causing a brush fire along Calhoun Route 7 near Stumptown. Otis Harris called for fire service at 2 p.m. after fire spread over several acres of grass and brush behind his house.

Wind causes pesky problem along Rt. 7

Both the Grantsville and Arnoldsburg Fire Departments responded to the pesky blaze which crossed over a hilltop behind the Harris house. It was brought under control, although wind gusts up to 35 miles per hour were fanning the embers.

Upper West Fork VFD was sent one mile up Oka Road at 6:45 p.m. Sunday. A grass fire was quickly extinguished.

The Spencer-Roane VFD in Spencer fought an equally troublesome grass and brush fire at the same time near the Grandview Motel along U.S. 33 west of Spencer. It was brought under control in over one hour.
