Darren Doyle story and photos
Local firefighters were called out to a grass fire on Noah Bledsoe Road in Chalybeate today across from the Lake Forrest Subdivision. Several neighbors took to the fire with shovels and rakes to help the Chalybeate Fire Department. Members from other local departments were on hand as well.
A local resident who did not give his name, was burning some cardboard boxes and windy conditions caused the fire to spread faster than he could handle. Although approximately three to four acres burned, it was a grass field only and no other property damage was sustained.
No injuries were reported.
