Brush fire leads to burning tipMarch 10, 2020
From Local Sources
ST. ANTHONY — The St. Anthony Volunteer Fire Department offered some advice while reporting on a Sunday brush fire.
“Although there has been plenty of rain, the winds have dried the upper surfaces and dead leaves add to the fire load,” said St. Anthony Chief Scott Uebelhor. “Fires can spread easily.”
St. Anthony’s firefighters were called to 2995 E. State Road 64, the Diana Gilbert property, at 1:57 p.m. when flames from trash being burned in a barrel spread into a field and then a wooded area.
Uebelhor said a half-acre area burned but there was no damage.
Three trucks and 20 firefighters were on the scene 30 minutes.
The chief added that the department’s website — stanthonyvfd.com — has a link explaining open burning in detail.
