This afternoon at 3:59 PM the call went out to Youngsville Fire Department to hurry on over to Northbrook Drive and douse a quickly spreading brush fire that was across from CaptaiveAire but closer to Canyon Stone Manufacturing. Franklinton Fire Department was called upon as well.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time and it was reportedly called in by a passerby.
It appeared the fire consumed a couple of acres of land and if left unchecked might have blown into the neighborhood behind. At least that’s the way the winds were blowing at one time.
Even while the fire was going on there was time to enjoy a rainbow.
It did not take long before the fire was walked into a corner and was extinguished.
