Brush fires erupt in Callaway County
Thursday, August 23, 2012
Although there are no laws in Callaway County preventing residents from burning trash or yard waste, local fire officials are hoping they will use their common sense and hold off until weather conditions improve.
There has been a rash of grass and brush fires in the county recently, including two large ones on Wednesday — one on State Route KK and another on Mokane Road just south of Fulton.
“We’ve responded to eight between yesterday and today,” said Lt. Jordan Holland with the Central Callaway Fire Protection District.
