-A A +A

Grass fires common in early spring, Fire Chief Barnes said

By Meaghan Downs

Three grass fires that sprung up seemingly out of nowhere at the Anderson and Nelson County line are being investigated as “suspicious,” according to Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes.
Barnes was notified by dispatch at about 2:50 p.m. Thursday afternoon of a large grass fire across the road from 4718 Bardstown Road, about one mile from the Anderson-Nelson county line.
Roughly 3-4 acres of bluegrass farmland had caught fire, Barnes said, and 23 mile per hour winds whipped the flames to heights of up to 6-8 feet tall.
