Members of the Chalybeate Fire Department responded to a brush fire in a wooded area today on Oak Grove Church Road. A witness said a resident was burning trash in a barrel near the woods line and burning embers were blown into the woods. Recent heavy rains provided enough moisture in the ground to help conditions.
Luckily, the woods only suffered surface damage as only a handful of firefighters were needed to snuff out the blaze. The home was okay as well.
