High Winds Whip Grassfire Across More Than 200 Acres

Winds of more than 30 mph whipped what started as a controlled burn into a wildfire that consumed more than 200 acres of CRP and timber in northern Scotland County on Saturday, March 20.

Fourteen members of the Scotland County Fire Department responded when the call came at approximately 4:00 p.m. Five fire trucks were taken to the scene, which was located north of the Brock Cemetery just shy of the Iowa state line. The responding firemen were assisted by several volunteers as well as the Scotland County Sheriffís Department and the Scotland County Ambulance Service.

The high winds allowed the blaze to jump one gravel road and more than double in size before the firemen finally were able to douse the last remnants around 6:30 p.m.

The fire department asks local residents to use common sense when burning this spring, to pay attention to changing weather conditions, and to avoid burning on windy days.
