Backyard Fire Spreads Into Nearby Woods

Late Monday afternoon firefighters from Dudley, Indian Springs and Arrington Fire Departments were dispatched to the scene of a woods fire on Hazelwood Drive.

A resident was burning some trash in their backyard when the fire became out of control, spreading to nearby woods and spreading even deeper into the woods.

Firefighters using their brush trucks managed to keep the fire from spreading to other residents in the area. A North Carolina Forestry service ranger was called in to assist firefighters in keeping the blaze from spreading any deeper into woods.

A plow operator arrived on the scene and proceeded to plow a line around the fire stopping it
from spreading.
