Kamay Controlled Burn Gets Out of Control

A controlled burn in Kamay got a little out of control Thursday morning, but it was knocked down by Volunteer Firefighters within 30 minutes.

Kamay Volunteer Fire Chief Barry Tyler said a resident on Fulfer Street, near Highway 258, started burning  brush in his front yard, when a Wichita County Sheriff's Deputy driving nearby thought it was out of control and called it in.
Tyler said just because residents call in advance that they will be igniting a controlled burn, they still have to be sure that they can put it out.  Tyler says it's only controlled if you can put it out, and this time it was more than what he could do. He added, everybody thinks the grass is wet, but it's not going to take much to burn it.
