Grass Fire Lights Up Bible Grove Skyline

The hills near Bible Grove were alight Tuesday evening and it wasn’t an early holiday display. Embers from a four-day old brush pile burn had rekindled and ignited a brush fire that spread across an estimated 100 acres of CRP fields on the Bill and Dave McRoberts farms west of Highway 136 in Scotland County.

The fire department was dispatched to the scene just before 5:00 p.m. on November 21st with a dozen volunteer firemen answering the call. A total of five fire trucks were used at the scene to battle the blaze that took approximately 90 minutes to extinguish.
