14.4 Acre Fire Burns Multiple Structures In Northern Columbia County

A small yard burn turned into a nightmare Wednesday afternoon for residents on Morrell Drive in Northern Columbia County. The 14.4 acre fire destroyed a single wide, a camper home and multiple other structures being used as storage and damaged an occupied double wide mobile home. This fire threatened many more structures but the efforts of the C.C.F.D., L.C.F.D. and the Florida Division of Forestry kept this fire from doing further damage.

According to the Florida Division of Forestry, Columbia County is under a Red Flag. Any burning must be approved.
