July 6th, 2012 by

An estimated 75 acres of forest land were burned in a wild fire, Thursday afternoon.

The fire began around 4 pm, near Chapman Trail, and at 6:30, had burned approximately 40 acres, and was still ablaze.

Arkansas Forestry Commission brought in 4-5 plows, 2 tanker planes, and a control plane.  A Blackhawk helicopter, from the National Guard, also arrived at the scene, to battle the blaze with a “pond bucket”.

Fire depts. involved included Lacey-Ladelle and Monticello, with Selma and Collins Cominto helping fill the AFC planes at the airport.

The fire was declared to be “contained” around 7:15, with the Forestry Commission remaining at the burn site, to watch for hot-spots.
