Harrison County Field Fire


October 6th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

A field fire in eastern part of Harrison County destroyed approximately 25 to 30 acres of land yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon. The call came from just off of Aspen Road in the hills around Dunlap at around 2:30pm. Tom Henry, Earling Fire Chief, says at least 4 fire departments were called to the scene. Henry says he believes the fire started because of a hot bearing from a combine. He says with the help of the other departments, the fire was put out before any buildings were damaged. It’s thought the land is owned by Robert Mitchell, of rural Dunlap.
