Firefighters ask for extra care in dry season

Ward Six Firefighters were called around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 29, to respond to a woods fire on Route 66 near Marcantel Road.

Upon arrival, approximately eight acres of brush and woods were on fire, with structures nearby. Ward Six personnel, along with mutual aid assistance from DeQuincy and Houston River Fire Department personnel, worked hard in scorching heat to contain the fire until Forestry arrived on scene to plow fire lanes around the perimeter of the property. It is unknown how the fire started.

Area fire departments ask for all citizens to be cognizant of the dry conditions we are experiencing and refrain from burning land or woods at this time.
