Warm Weather Ushers In Seasons First Grass Fires

Temperatures jumped into the 60s last week, driving people outdoors to enjoy the weather and to get a jump start on the typical spring chores. The warm up also helped the Scotland County fire department get a head start on the spring grass fire season.

Volunteers from the department responded to a pair of natural cover fires on Wednesday, March 14th.

The department was dispatched to the Cecil Parsons residence on Ridge Road at 11:50 a.m. The residents had been burning a brush pile but the blaze got out of control and spread to the neighboring property.

The fire burned approximately six acres of grass before it was finally doused by the fire department.

While on the scene of this fire, the department was notified of a second emergency call. Firemen split forces, leaving a pumper truck and a back-up at the Parsons fire scene while sending the remaining equipment and volunteers east of Arbela.

The department responded to the Beatrice Watson residence, located 12 miles east of Memphis on Highway 136 at 11:58 a.m.

The property owner had been burning trash when embers sparked the natural cover fire east of the house.

Approximately 60 acres of grass and timber was burned by the blaze before firemen finally brought it under control.
