A buzzard that became tangled in electric transmission lines burst into flames, fell to the ground and started a large brush fire last Thursday afternoon.
The incident was just the latest among several fires that have bedeviled local firefighters during the area's ongoing drought.
Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes recounted the burning buzzard incident Monday, saying the fire started when the flaming bird landed on the ground near Timber Creek Road.
"The land there is not flat and we had to hike back in there a ways to get to it," said Barnes.
