Horse-Shoe-Lake Fire District burn ban

 The Horse-Shoe-Lake Fire district is under a burn ban until further notice.

According to the Horse-Shoe Lake Fire Chief in Olive Branch the burn ban is due to the windy and dry conditions in the Heartland and is asking residents not to burn anything.

Late Saturday afternoon fire crews in Alexander County fought a wood/field fire in Hodges Park.

According to the Fire Chief, a home owner was burning trash in a barrel when the wind spread flames to a field and wooded area.

The fire was extinguished by fire crews in less than 15 minutes.

The blaze burnt close to 1/2 acre of property.
