Obstacles continue in fight against Clay County fire
Smoke and falling trees are becoming a hazard as Clay County Fire Rescue attempts to control the Caribbean Circle fire. Clay County Fire Rescue Captain Bernita Bush says the crew is handling the flames the best it can.
Bush adds residents near the containment lines can do their part to help by clearing any dead shrubs or bushes, raking leaves and removing any flammable mulch, to create a defensible zone for the fire fighters. The fire near Keystone Heights sparked last week.
