Windy Weather Whips Up Pair Of Grassfires

Windy conditions on Saturday afternoon helped whip up a pair of grass fires in Scotland County.

The first fire was reported at 1:10 p.m. behind the Crawford Auto buildings on Highway 136 in Memphis.

The fire, which started in a neighboring farm field, quickly spread down the wooded ditch behind Crawford Auto and the office of Barbara Crawford and Associates.

When firemen arrived, the blaze was just feet away from the south end of the buildings. The volunteers quickly brought the blaze under control.

Firemen mopped up at the scene and had to use a chainsaw to remove a number of the trees in the ditch as they continued to be a fire hazard with the windy conditions.

The department was on the scene for approximately 45 minutes.

While the department was regrouping at the fire station, refueling the trucks and refilling the water tanks, a second fire call was received.

The department responded to a grass fire north of Crawford on Route B on property owned by Freda Crook at 2:13 p.m.

The department was on the scene for approximately an hour and was assisted by the Downing Fire Department.
