Officials say arson is being blamed for a brush fire that torched around 50 acres in the Roach area.
Smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles around the lake when the initial report was received around 2:15 PM on Saturday.
No structures were in danger and no injuries were reported.
Personnel from the Southwest Camden County Fire District were joined at the scene by personnel from the Mid-County, Sunrise Beach, Gravois and Rocky Mount districts along with the conversation department.
It took a little over three hours to contain the blaze.
