(Field fire)….It was reported at 3:00 Tuesday afternoon.

It was reported in a Bermuda grass field South of Keystone Road. County Fire responded to the call. County Chief Tony Rouhotas says a farmhouse was located near-by, prompting the Department to call in mutual aid. The Chief said that was a precaution and the farm house was never in danger.

Rouhotas said no equipment was damaged as a result of the fire and no injuries were reported.
