Forest Fire Jumps Plow Line

Firefighters in Smith County continued to fight a forest fire this afternoon that started yesterday.   The blaze scorched more than 20 acres off County Road 363 and 352 near Winona.  Firefighters say an illegal burn yesterday led to a 10-acre fire. Sometime overnight, that fire jumped the plow line and rekindled itself. Today's blaze burned around 15 acres before firefighters got it under control.   No structures were in danger and no one was injured in the fire. Officials say the person responsible for starting the fire was cited.
