Fires raged across Camden County on Tuesday fueled by dry conditions and increasing winds. Most of the fires were in the mid-county fire protection district’s section of the county including the city of Montreal where Fire Chief Scott Frandsen says nearly 600 acres were burned
There where additional fires on possum hollow and in the Camelot estates area. Frandsen says a simple trash fire caused several acres to be burned
Frandsen says their department put the fire out only to find it re-kindled later in the evening
Frandsen pleads with residents to not burn when the conditions are not favorable and if you have any question to contact the district for information on burning permits and conditions.
