Fire crews from all over the Lake area are attempting to extinguish a fire that has been burning since Mid-Monday afternoon. According to Mid-County Fire Chief Scott Frandsen, fire crews have been fighting high winds which have been thwarting the efforts of firefighters to put out the blaze near Lake Road 7-3 and Velvet road that has caused damage to a Garage as well as a backhoe and dump truck from the fire department. Parts of highway 7 have been so thick with smoke it’s become nearly impossible to travel. Firefighters are advising people to stay away from the area while crews attempt to bring this fire under control. We will have more updates as the information is released.
