This fire along Highway 16 west of Park Road 36 last week was reported as two that merged into one. Possum Kingdom East volunteer firefighters were able to knock it down and keep the flames from spreading into cedar trees. This fire occurred before ice, rain and high humidity levels prompted the lifting of the burn ban. (Mark Engebretson)

Recent ice and rain prompted the lifting of the ban.
Commissioners will reconsider the ban at the Monday meeting.
