Martin County Deals With More Fires Monday

Fire officials in Martin County had their hands full fighting fires Monday and Sunday, some in residential areas.

Nine different fire and rescue crews came together to help put out the flames.

The biggest fire burned about fifteen acres in Free Union in Jamesville. One vacant house was burned. Crews were out spraying down the area Monday. There also was another fire near Hamilton. A woman was burning trash in a barrel when the flames got out of control.

Fire and forestry officials say 23 acres of land burned and that no one was injured even though many of the fires were in residential communities.
