Tanglewood Grass Fire
The Tanglewood Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to a grass fire at the corner of CR 415 and CR 419 on Thursday, June 20, at about 4 in the afternoon. Guy Hall, III, Assitant Fire Chief and EMT for TVFD, said they arrived on the scene to find two to three acres of heavily wooded pine trees on fire. He said the area also had a lot of dumped trash.
Lexington VFD was summoned to help them fight the blaze, which took several hours to get under control.
This fire was determined to be ignited by a fire that was left unattended the night before. Tanglewood VFD encourages citizens to monitor their burns at all times.
