Multiple fires are being attended to in Montgomery County on Saturday afternoon. With little rain, and heavy winds, fires have been spreading throughout the county, keeping the Sheriff's Office, Fire Departments around the area, and first responders busy.
All farmers in the area with discs are asked to respond to N 9th Avenue and Schoolhouse Road to assist in the fire. If you are in the area or have family or friends in the southeast area of Montgomery County west of Coffeen and east of Route 127, check the area for fires, and evacuate if need be.
You are encouraged NOT to contact the Sheriff's Office unless it's an emergency due to fires spreading. Please stay away from the area unless you are a first responder. If you wish to donate water, bring it to the Sheriff's Office lobby for pickup. Again, do not respond to the fire scene. This is a developing story, and we will have more as it becomes available.
