A grass and brush fire near Rt. 147 at Simpson kept three area fire departments occupied this afternoon.
The fire was reported at 4:15 p.m. today as a grass fire.
When Vienna firemen arrived at the scene, across from Simpson Baptist Church, they discovered most of the fire in a rocky, over-grown ravine several yards from the highway.
Shawnee National Forest and New Burnside’s departments assisted the Vienna crew.
All three departments were on the scene for an hour and half.
