Crews extinguish brush fire, remind of state burning law

Brush burnBy CALVIN PYNN


Fire crews arrived at a residence off of Lee Highway in Pulaski early Tuesday afternoon in response to a small brush fire.

Although firefighters arrived to put out a controlled burn, it was in violation of the state’s burning law, which has been put into effect temporarily due to the high risk for forest fires in the early spring.
