BRUSH FIRES SPRING UP - Fire Season Begins

Spring fire season officially starts today through May 31st, which does not allow outside burning between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

High temperatures and outside burning led to at least two brush fires over the weekend, just prior to the restrictions.

The Grantsville and Arnoldsburg VFD responded to a 3-acre fire on a hillside on Big Root after 4 p.m. Saturday.

The Upper West Fork VFD answered a brush fire call along Rt. 16 at Milo Road, Minnora, where one acre reportedly burned.

The Arnoldsburg VFD responded to a minor accident on Beech Road, Sunday afternoon. No one was taken to the hospital.
