Three small brush fires in Briceville

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Department was called to a section of New River Highway in Briceville on Friday night after someone reported small brush fires along the side of the road.

A responding deputy located three small brush fires in the 6700 block of New River Highway, which he described as “moving uphill at a slow pace.” No structures, power poles or any other property were not threatened by the fires, which were extinguished by the Briceville Volunteer Fire Department.
