Firefighters responded to Bluestem Road yesterday afternoon for a wild land fire.

Crews from Leon helped with the fast moving fire.

Forty-five minutes later the fire had been brought under control.

Firefighters remained on scene for another hour extinguishing smoldering trees.

Be extra careful with anything that might spark a fire.  Heavy grass plus dry conditions plus high winds equals big fires.
