One of the state’s largest fires continues to threaten the interior community of Lime Village, aproaching as close as a half mile on Thursday. The raging wildfire jumped across established fire lines Thursday to burn 80 acres near the village. Francis Mitchell is a Public Information officer with the division of Forestry.
"A local storm came in, from the northeast with some wind and a little squall. It caused a break near the village. Air tanker retardant drops and smokejumpers went in late Thursday and were able to catch the break," said Mitchell.
