Bollinger County firefighters battled four brush fires and one structure fire Thursday. Marble Hill Fire Chief Jim Bollinger says crews were called at 11 a.m. for a brush fire and a metal garage on fire in Sedgewickville. Nearly 50 acres burned off of B Highway and County Road 312. Another brush fire near Greenbriar took several hours to knock down. Bollinger says dry grounds and high winds contributed to the fires and two of them started due to ashes being dumped. A red flag warning was in place.
