Yep, there's a fire burning along Jackson Rd. in Waterforf Twp. It's near the Atco Dragstrip. They say 250+ acres have burned so far. Probably some nitwit threw a cigarette out the window! The woods are gettin' really dry down here.

They say we're in a red alert for forest fires until we get some rain. We're supposed to get high winds tomorrow that will only add to the problem.

We got a call today saying it looks like we will not be able to allow campfires this weekend from the warden .

Thats sure going to make our campers happy . They just do not care about the fire hazzard . We have thrown more than one camper out that goes ahead and starts one anyway .

I talked to a buddy of mine that is a fireman and quite a few companies are there (well were there as of last night) fighting the fire. It was supposed to rain last night but we only got a very brief storm up near me.:(
