60 Acres Fire Causes Fire Marshals To Worry About Holiday Weekend

An afternoon fire in Smith County destroys between 50 and 60 acres at the intersection of Highway 155 and County Road 190 between Noonday and Dogwood City.

Neighbors say this field was cleared two years ago. Today the fire just made a beeline through it. Firefighters worked hard, and kept it from surrounding homes. The Smith County Fire Marshal told us if there are any more fires like this one, they may recommend an emergency burn ban for the county.
