I’m sure that many of you are aware that a wildfire broke out this past weekend in jefferson county.
We only have a few photos of the fire. The area is really sparsely populated, so we’re not sure why.
However, it turns out that there seems to be another fire going on in the adjacent county. This is still not certain though, but we’re looking into it at the moment.
Well, the fire started in jefferson county and spread to the neighboring county. But it seems like it has grown and become more widespread. So far, it looks like a very small percentage of the county is affected, but we’ll see. Firefighters are still on the scene trying to contain the fire, and there is currently an evacuation order being enforced in both counties.
The fire at the center of jefferson county is not the only fire we know of in this area. The other fires we know of here are at least a couple miles apart, but they are both still burning at the moment. So what is the difference between this one and all the other ones? Well, it might be that we don’t know for sure yet.
Well, this one is a couple miles closer to the center of jefferson county. The other one is just about a mile away. The other one is a few hundred yards due north. The other one is a few hundred yards due west. The other one is a few hundred yards due south. But they are all burning. And jefferson county has so far only had its fire department arrive, so there will be even more firefighters on the scene to ensure the fire stops.
Fire can be quite the hassle. As more people see the smoke billowing into the air, it is easy to get caught up in the fear that it is a sign of a greater disaster. The fire department in jefferson county has been on the scene since about 5:00pm this week. So far, five firefighters have been injured fighting the blaze.
Of course, the fire chief, Jim Jones, won’t have any more information until Monday, but it seems his team is doing everything they can to find the cause. They have been working on a map of the fire, but so far they have been unable to locate anything. Jim Jones said that it is possible it started with an electrical problem.
The fire department says it is too early to tell if the fire has been started. This means that the fire could have ignited a bomb or explosion. But we can’t say for sure because it appears to be part of a larger fire.
The fire department says there is no information about what the fire was up to. They are working on a map but we don’t have it.
