Dry conditions brought about by our drought kept firefighters busy once again over the weekend.
Numerous fires were reported late last week into the weekend, including the most serious one, which occurred in the Stony Fork area of Campbell County. That fire threatened three homes and damaged a shed before it was brought under control on Saturday afternoon.
State Forestry officials are urging people to be extremely careful if they have to burn anything outdoors and remind all Tennesseeans that burn permits are required through May 15th. Visit www.burnsafetn.org before you burn anything and obtain that free burn permit.
