2 departments stop Kyana-area woods fireFebruary 4, 2020
From Local Sources
KYANA — Members of Schnellville and Birdseye’s fire departments teamed up Monday afternoon to halt a woods fire east of Kyana.
The Schnellville Volunteer Fire Department received the initial 2:40 p.m. callout to the John Chumbley property at 7389 E. State Road 64, according to Fire Chief Mark Fischer.
Ashes had been dumped outside Saturday and Monday’s winds fanned embers enough to catch surrounding brush on fire, according to Fischer.
Schnellville called for brush truck and tanker assistance from Birdseye and together the departments stopped the fire. Approximately 2 acres burned, according to Fischer.
Birdseye responded with four trucks and 10 firefighters, while Schnellville’s department sent four trucks and 15 firefighters.
Units were on the scene for an hour.
