March 9, 2013 – An attempted control burn near the entrance to Wildcat Bluff in southern Johnson County quickly got out of control Saturday afternoon.

The Vienna volunteer fire department responded at 2:15 p.m. to a report of a “trash fire that has gotten out of control” at 1540 Wildcat Bluff Road.

The department and and other volunteers at the scene were able to bring the fire under control within a short time.

Firemen were on the scene for nearly two and a half hours.

While at the fire scene, Tony Gerard told The Vienna Times the fire started on his property and spread unto a neighboring out of state landowner.
